So funny! Lol!

Cute little bugger, isn't he? (or her) Those claws can take a mean swipe of flesh off a person's leg, though, if the animal is wild. (I know this from reading Gerald Durrell's books, otherwise I wouldn't know diddly squat.)

Although it is hard to imagine a sloth moving quickly enough to pose much of a threat...

I know. But evidently they can move their arms swiftly, when on the defense. Their upper bodies are quite powerful.

And I understand they're very gamy smelling. The fur is full of bugs and fungus, or, as in the case of the green sloth, algae. Hence, the animal's name. Although . . . I might be mistaken about the algae part. It might just be fungus that lends the color green to the sloth's fur. Now I can't remember.

Aw, c'mon, how can anyone be cautious about a creature that moves so slowly that algae grows on it?

It's a paradox, Hutch. One of life's great mysteries, that nature would provide such a slow animal with deadly claws.

I imagine it's only drunks who need to be cautious around sloths, especially drunks who verbally abuse sloths then pass out on the ground.

Yes, I can see how that would be useful, passed-out drunks being the only living creature slower-moving than a sloth.
Sorry, I must stop maligning sloths. I've felt for some time that they've been fooling us for centuries and can actually put on lightning-fast bursts of speed that would enable them to outrun a cheetah. I suspect they are actually our Sloth Overlords.

Sloth Overlords . . . somehow brings government to mind.

Be a great book title, wouldn't it? Or a Doctor Who episode.
