La Porte du Ciel
The two-toed sloth
This unique animal is perfectly adapted to living in trees: its internal organs are 135° rotated in order to prevent them from being crushed by its heavy intestines. A real leaf-eater, the Two-Toed Sloth spends its time hanging from branches, upside down.
Its fur shelters some species of algae which find here an ideal environment, packed with nutrients and moisture. In exchange, the sloth benefits from the algae’s colours, varying from green to blue, and serving as camouflage against predators such as eagles and jaguars. A unique symbiosis between mammals and algae!
When confronted with danger, the “slow” sloth defends itself surprisingly fast with its long, pointed claws!
