If you want to hear some amazing adaptations for the sloth then keep on reading! The sloth has many adaptations. First I will tell you the behavioral adaptations! They hang upside down when they are sleeping so it will look like a stump or branch, when they get hot they will lay on there backs cause their bellies have less fur which cools them down, sloths eat at night, and rarely drink cause it gets most of its moisture from leaves they eat, and also from licking dew from the surface of leaves, and branches. I will now tell you the physical adaptations. The sloth has long curved claws to hang upside down on trees, and sloths have keen sense of smell, and touch to find food.
