Pygmy sloths or Bradypus pygmaeus are 48 to 53 centimetres tall and 2.5 to 3.5 kg in weight. Pygmy sloths live in Isla Escudo de Veraguas which is in Panama and have been endangered because of habitat distruction. There are less than 100 of these three toed sloths. Pygmy sloths are excellent swimmers. I hope that these sloths wil grow in population.
