Raisin the Two Toed Sloth eating grapes
Video showing a loveable two toed sloth eating grapes at the Brookfield Zoo in Illinois. The sloth is called raisin. There are two Hoffman’s two-toed sloths, Raisin and Lawrence, that are in the Tropic World Exhibit at the zoo.
Cracks in the long coarse hair of a sloth allow many different species of algae and fungi to grow which makes them appear green and provides camouflage. As well as algae and fungi, it can provides home to an entire ecosystem of invertebrates — some species of which are found nowhere else on earth (like the ‘sloth moth’). A single sloth can host up to 950 moths and beetles within its fur at once.
