Sloths Powerful Grip!

tree toed sloth
  • Since they spend most of their time in trees, sloths muscles and limbs have been engineered to climb trunks to find food and escape predators.
  • They spend so much time in the trees that the tree holds their very life in the balance, sometimes even after they’ve died, according to National Geographic.
  • The grip of a sloth is so strong that sometimes when they die, they are found still clinging to the very branch they were lounging from when they were alive.
