There are two kinds of two toed sloths: Linnaeus’s two toed sloth, and Hoffmann’s two toed sloth. The main superficial difference between these two toed sloths and the three toed sloth is size and and movement speed.
Three toed sloths are generally larger and faster. The two different types of sloth aren’t believed to be very closely related, though. The sloth eats shoots and leaves, as well as fruits, nuts, berries, and occasionally small rodents.
They have an exceptionally slow metabolism, and as a result food can take nearly a month to digest. Their stomachs have multiple chambers to accommodate this, though.
After all the digestion is done with, the sloth’s weight can go down by up to 30 percent, or around 13 pounds.
