On Costa Rica's Caribbean Coast there are large amounts of sloths.
Both the 2-toed and the 3-toed sloths live here. In fact, sloths
outnumber monkeys in the rainforest. There are more sloths per acre
than there are monkeys, but since they are so slow
and discreet, we hardly ever notice them.
Sloths do have a favorite tree that they like to eat the leaves
from. This tree is called the guarumo.
The owners of Villa Toucan
have planted over 50 guarumos on the property, thus providing
plenty of food and habitat for the sloths. The guarumos
also provide for and attract numerous toucans!
