Sloths are very strange animals with their sluggish behaviors, yet they are very interesting at the same time. Sloths belong to the mammalian order Xenarthra, which also includes armadillos and anteaters. There are two different kinds of sloths, the two-toed and the three-toed sloth. There are four species of three-toed sloths and two species of two-toed sloths. Two of these species of sloth can be found in the tropical forests of Costa Rica, the brown-throated three-toed sloth (Bradypus variegatus) and Hoffmann’s two-toed sloth (Choloepus hoffmanni). Both of these sloths are found on both the Caribbean and the Pacific slopes, most elevations, and in pristine and disturbed forests (Wainwright). The general appearance of these two sloths

Although Algernon seems to be guilty only of harmless sloth, he is the lowest on the axis for not only his complete lack of guilt, but for making fun of those who take any responsibility. While Algernon’s sloth may seem harmless, only going “Bunburying” to escape from tedious family dinners, his actions cause a great deal of trouble for the other characters, and his lack of responsibility leads him into deep debt.
