Hang In There

I’ve never drawn a sloth before and now I can say that I have - and I love them even more. Did you know that despite being the slowest mammals on land, they are incredible swimmers. They can slow their heart rate to one-third of their normal pace, allowing sloths to hold their breath underwater for up to 40 minutes. Also, thanks to extra bones in their neck, sloths can rotate their heads 270 degrees.

Sadly, sloth populations are declining due to poaching, habitat loss, and human interference. You can find out more on how to help sloths at the World Wildlife Foundation.
