Conservation Status[edit]

"When sloths have sex, it takes three days because they are so slow."

That's the last line, and I'm not sure if it should be there. For one it has almost nothing to do with conservation status and secondly, it seems more of a joke than actual fact. -__- It is funny though. --Pwncak3z 22:36, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

unau[edit]

Are these sloths also called "unau"? dave 21:27, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

They are Unau according to Encarta —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.238.2.126 (talk) 07:27, 13 October 2007 (UTC)


Distribution[edit]

I changed the range for Choloepus hoffmanni, because according to the IUCN it ranges as far north as Honduras.--SonCR (talk) 02:38, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, that's fine. The other source cited in the article agrees, FWIW. Anaxial (talk) 18:24, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

Hoffmann's two-toed sloth
Hoffmann's two-toed sloth (Choloepus hoffmanni) is a species of sloth from Central and South America named for the German naturalist Karl Hoffmann. This solitary, largely nocturnal and arboreal animal, is found in mature and secondary rainforests and deciduous forests. Adults range from 54 to 72 cm (21 to 28 in) in head-body length, and weigh from 2.1 to 9 kg (4.6 to 19.8 lb). Females are larger on average than males, although with considerable overlap in size.Photograph: Geoff Gallice
