Not Just a Sleepy Sloth

By, Cathy Jeannotte

I’m a super-sloth and I’m a little slow and sleepy, 

but there’s a lot more to sloth-ing than just being crawly creepy.

Sure, I don’t rush around,

there’s nowhere I have to go.

But if we’re talking sloth life, there’s some things you ought to know.

I’m a three-toed sloth but some sloths have only two.

We each have two fingers, a lot less than you.

Another difference between us,

scientists have found,

is that we can turn our heads almost completely right around!

We sloths are underrated and sometimes misunderstood.

You might think our life is boring but really it’s quite good.

We spend a lot of time in trees, hours and hours it’s true.

In the wild we sleep nine hours a day, quite similar to you.
