Moths, cockroaches, fungi, algae, and beetles can all live on a single sloth. Sloths are folivores and have had their digestive system adapt to their eating habits. Leaves are their main food sources and aren’t rich in nutrients; therefore, sloths have large and specialized slow stomachs that have multiple compartments. These compartments contain symbiotic acid which can break down the tough leaves. Sloths have some pretty impressively long tongues.
Fossas are the largest carnivores in Madagascar. They are native only to the island nation of Madagascar. Secretive and cat-like, these predators are well equipped for chasing down lemurs in the forest.

Both of these sloths can be found in nearly all elevations with the three-toed going up to 2400 m and the two-toed being seen as high as 3,300 m (Wainwright). While both kinds are found in primary forest, secondary forests, and subtropical lowlands, the three-toed is much more commonly seen. This is due to the fact that the three-toed is active during the day and night, while the two-toed is mostly nocturnal (Wainwright). Both sloths spend nearly all of their time in the tree canopy and for the most part they do not prefer specific species of trees. Three-toed and two-toed sloths have little muscle mass and low heart rates, so they do prefer to be in taller trees in which they can bask in the sun in order to maintain a warmer body temperature (Jung, Apostolopoulos).
