Sloths hardly leave their trees except when they go for a swim or to the bathroom. They even mate and give birth to their young ones in trees. This starts when a female gives a mating call by yelling. Males will then fight for her by hanging from trees and pawing at each other. The winner sloth gets to mate.
#9. They only defecate once a week
One of the reason they leave their trees is for defecating and they do it only once a week. This is cause their food, the leaves they eat takes up to 30 days to digest. They can lose up to one-third of their body weight after going to the toilet.
#10. Why they die?
Half of the sloth deaths occur when they go on their weekly trip to dig a hole and defecate. Since they always use the same spot, they are vulnerable to predators.
