In Costa Rica we have two types of two-toed sloths the (Choleopus hoffmani) and three fingers (Barypus variegatus). Sloths as the name implies are characteristically slow to shift, usually spend most of their time in the tops of the trees where they avoid predators and get food and water.
A three-toed sloth lives in Osa Peninsula they are a solitary creatures, arboreal and nocturnal, sloths use their long claws to climb prominent canopies of rainforest of Peninsula de Osa of Costa Rica. As the world’s slowest mammal, sloths spend an average of 18 hours a day asleep and are most active from dusk to dawn.
Who is not going to relax in the rainforest of the Osa Peninsula??? Looks like these animals love this area of the country, if you are lucky in Villas Rio Mar eco resort hotel in Dominical you will find some of these animals in the treetops of our gardens. Around once a week they comes down to dig a hole with his tail then defecates and urine, then covered with sheets using their hind legs and back to your preferred height, during this time they have the risk to die for one of their depredator.
