Have you ever wondered what made sloths such a pop culture phenomenon? Us too! It seems like the furry odd-balls went from an encyclopedia entry to rockstar status overnight with little to no explanation other than cuteness. But, instead of just assuming their popularity stems solely from their absurd but charming looks, we did a little research. If the following facts aren’t why sloths have reached icon status, we think they should be!
Sloths are built upside down. Well, not exactly, but their major organs are attached to their ribs so that they can spend the majority of their lives hanging around. Sloths only need to—forgive us—make waste once a week and sometimes just once a month! They have a natural camouflage from algae that grows in their fur. That same algae makes for a tasty snack when they need a nutrient boost too! Most charmingly in our opinion is their lazy nature. A sloths’ laziness is a survival tactic that allows them to live relatively long lives, and if we could say the same about our couch potato tendencies, life would never be the same.
