Sloths are perhaps most famous for their ability to live and carry out many life functions in an upside down manner. Two-toed sloths have two long claws on their fore limbs and three claws on the hind limbs. . Sloths are covered with tan to greyish brown hairs. Apparently, the sloths hair is specially designed to allow algae to effectively colonize. Greenish camouflage is the most obvious advantage although it is a possibility that the sloths may somehow gain nutrition through absorption or consumption of the colony.
