Sloths are slow , terribly slow, there is no other mammal in the world that moves so slowly. Sloths are therefore considered the quintessence of laziness, the naturalist Georges-Louis Leclerc de Buffon, the first to describe these animals, wrote “slowness and stupidity are the results of the sloth's conformation, strange and messy. These animals are the lowest form of existence. Yet another defect would have made their existence impossible ”. However, it is not a good idea to judge a creature that has existed for about sixty-four million years sufficiently and the slowness of the sloths has a precise function.

Slow down to survive

The slow metabolism and extremely staid movements of sloths have a specific purpose and are aimed at achieving the primary purpose of all living beings: to survive. Considering that, as mentioned, the first sloths appeared millions of years ago, we can certainly say that they have a winning strategy .

Sloths aren't great sleepers

By observing the behavior of the three-toed sloth ( Bradypus tridactylus ), the researchers found that, contrary to popular belief, these animals do not sleep most of the day , but for eight to ten hours. The remaining time they move and move, albeit very slowly and always maintaining the same rhythm. This slowed-down movement allows sloths a reduced energy expenditure, even other animals, such as frogs and snakes, use a similar strategy that is instead unique among homeothermic (ie warm-blooded) mammals. Sloths are able to control heat loss and thermoregulate themselves thanks to behavioral and postural adjustments and, above all, they burn very little energy.
