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.

There are many reasons that make an animal popular among people however, as for this gorilla named as Ambam we can see it possess a very unique stunt.

The three sloth are vertebrates. The Three-Toed Sloth has one adaptation which is that it is so sedentary, or still and lazy, that an algae grows on its fur, making a camouflage for the sloth to hide itself with. Their hind legs are incredibly weak, but their front arms are so strong, that sloths pull themselves along the ground. This makes it clumsy on land, but a surprisingly great swimmer. They also have an incredibly strong grip provided by their claws, which helps them stay up in trees There main prey are: buds, leaves, fruit There main predators are: Eagles, snakes, and jaguars

Squirrel Monkeys are small in size only weighing between 1.7 and 2.4 lbs.
Natural Selection Introduction: Natural Selection is the ability to survive and reproduce in a given environment. It is known due to evolution that has occurred over time and how mutation, migration, and genetic drift have changed. There is a variation in traits in animals, for example some birds have bigger beaks that can be used to feed on worms and bugs that are way underneath the river and lakes. Also there is a differential reproduction that occurs because not all animals can reproduce the same amount and there is a limit that the environment can support over time. Some bugs due to their color can be an easy target for birds to eat and makes it harder for them to keep reproducing the same trait.
