Sloths only head to the ground about once a week, to go to the bathroom. That is a real commitment to laziness to "hold it" for a week at a time! PS - don't you think this sloth looks a lot like a furry turtle with a bad toupee? Or is that just me?

People are always interested in seeing all the adorable animals of the world. That's lovely and everything, but I was feeling a little bad for the less cute animals. So, I decided to give some attention to the sloth. Yes, the sloth. They are not beautiful or cute (no, stop, they are not), and in some cases they look a little deranged (you'll see). Sloths pretty much do nothing but hang from trees. When they have babies, the babies hang onto their mothers. Sometimes a baby sloth will fall to the ground and ultimately die. They don't die from the fall, they die because the mother sloth can't go to the trouble to climb down the tree and get the baby, thus leaving them helpless. What is that?!?! Are sloths lazy...or just plain crazy? Check out these 7 pictures and decide for yourself! - By Amy Fleck
