Stuffed Animal Sloth - Cuddly Toy

1 to 3 (from a total of 3)
Discover the high-quality cuddly toy sloths of the Carl Dick Collection: The appearance of a sloth with its small head and the all the larger-looking body with its shaggy fur simply has something cute and likeable. That is why plush animal sloths are very popular. One finds the living models exclusively in Central and South America living. There, sloths spend most of their lives hanging upside down in trees with their claws. And they can sleep over 15 hours a day. To call them lazy is also a bit unfair. After all, they feed exclusively on leaves and buds and have a very slow metabolism. Their body is simply trimmed for thrift and therefore they move only in slow motion, if they absolutely have to. Therefore, they are considered the slowest of all mammals. About a stuffed animal sloth from Carl Dick as a sweet (and naughty) gift everyone is happy, because they are amiable creatures- and just for many a human sloth they are always suitable as a funny gift idea.

Buy Cuddly sloths: Interesting facts about the cozy and friendly jungle inhabitants

Sloth Plush Toy Stuffed AnimalSloth stuffed animals are one of the most popular categories on Which is of course mainly due to the particularly cute appearance of the living role models from nature. Their small head with its sympathetic face sits on a relatively quite strong body with long arms and legs. Accordingly, this is lovingly implemented in the cuddly soft plush sloths from Carl Dick.
And of course their popularity is also due to the particularly cozy and energy-saving lifestyle of the tree dwellers, because the mammals spend almost their entire lives hanging in treetops and move only extremely slowly and only when it is really necessary.

This is because their food grows practically under the sloths' noses. They feed mainly on leaves, fruits and flowers. Their slow metabolism allows this low-calorie food to fill their stomachs for a long time, because everything in the sloth's life is trimmed to conserve energy, which makes them smart and efficient, not lazy. And when the food almost grows into your mouth and you are safe, there is no reason for fast movements and hurry!? By the way, the head of the sloth is extremely mobile with its additional neck vertebrae and can be turned over 180 degrees!

One distinguishes the six known sloth species into the two genera of the two-fingered and the three-fingered sloths, which become differently large and heavy and live only in Central and South America. Long extinct is the giant sloth living in North America, which was larger than a grizzly bear and could weigh up to two tons! By the way, the closest relatives of today's sloths are the anteater and the armadillo.

As the name suggests, two-fingered and three-fingered sloths differ in the number of claws on their front limbs. On the legs, however, all sloth species have exactly three claws, with which they can climb excellently and hang on branches. In the plush animal sloths, of course, you will find velvety soft fingers instead of sharp claws.
As good as the sloths can climb with these claws, the more difficult they can move to the ground with their long arms and legs. For this they must ram their claws into the ground and move forward crawling. Contrary to expectations, however, they are very good and fast swimmers.

But sloths only leave the treetops anyway when they find no more food and can only reach the next tree via the ground. This is not without risk, because unfortunately they often fall victim to predators such as cats of prey, snakes and birds of prey.
More often, however, the three-fingered sloths leave their tree to defecate. Here moths lay their larvae in them and the moths themselves in turn fly into the fur of the sloth, where they feed on the algae living there.

For another special feature of some sloths is the symbiosis they form with the algae living in their fur. These dye the sloth's fur green, which provides additional camouflage in the treetops and, with the tree dwellers' slow mode of movement, attracts less attention and protects them from predators. And most importantly, the algae serve as an energy-rich food reserve for the sloth.

Thus, the sloth usually hangs from a branch with its claws or sits in a branch fork and sleeps there with its head on its chest, up to 15 hours a day. Researchers suggest that it can live 30-40 years in the wild this way. And even mating and the birth of offspring take place hanging in trees. Sloths are also called "Ai" by the jungle dwellers of South America because they make such a sound during the mating season, with which the female attracts the male.

But now enough learned: Here you will discover great plush sloths to bring the velvety soft and natural designed animals to your home. To cuddle, play and as an unusual decoration for all animal lovers.
