-- created by Foundation AIUNAU who acquired this compromise on the First international meeting about the well-being, rehabilitation, and conservation of sloths, held in Medellin, Colombia, November of 2010. It was created as a necessity to bring the world of sloths and their forest to the citizens/people as a process of sensibilization towards wildlife. These species are so special, these cryptic and shy beings inspire us and awaken our tender feelings. There is a lot sloths can teach us – respect, tenderness, joy, sharing. Nevertheless, in our lack of awareness, we harm them so much and bring their existence in danger of extinction. Source

Wild Republic Three-Toed Sloth -- Unlike other mammals, real sloths spend most of their lives hanging upside-down from tree branches, so their legs are adapted for that purpose. When the item is in a sitting position it looks with the back claws pointing inwards, towards each other.

Hug a Sloth Kit -- Awww! You know you can't resist the cute little sloth! Learn all about the slooooow life as you snuggle this bitty treetop dweller. Guidebook features sloth facts and fancies, as well as an adoption certificate, suggested names, and more.

Sloth Action Figure -- The Sloth spends almost its entire life in the trees of tropical rainforest. Its curved claws give it a firm grip on the branches of the trees. Since it always hangs from the branches upside down, the Sloth fur grows from its belly towards its back, instead of growing from its back or head. This allows rainwater to drain away better.
