Baby sloths sometimes die after falling from their mother's back, not because of the impact of the fall, but from their mother's unwillingness to leave the safty of the trees and go after their baby. Check out that little guy, it's hard to believe he could withstand the impact of such a fall!

A sloth has a very low metabolism, so it must eat a lot to get the nutrients it needs. And since it takes such a long time for a sloth to digest its food, a sloth will usually only urinate or defecate once a week during the short time it leaves the trees.
