        I do love sloths. In my junior school I used to learn a subject called ecology where we used to learn about weird and wonderful animals and do things like make paper. Sloths are great because they are so lazy, and often I feel like that on Sunday mornings! In ecuador some people call them words like ‘ritto’ that means dirty. On the ground, their maximum speed is 2 m a minute! It takes Ussain Bolt less than 10 seconds to run 100 m, but it would take a sloth nearly an hour !!!! They sleep for nearly 18 hours a day ! Have you ever done that?
