“Brown-throated three-toed sloth” is the common name for a species of sloth native to Central and South America. Its scientific name is Bradypus variegatus.

The brown-throated three-toed sloth is primarily found in the tropical rainforests of Central and South America, particularly in countries such as Costa Rica, Panama, and Brazil. They spend most of their time in trees, where they move slowly and deliberately, using their long arms and powerful claws to hang onto branches.

Their diet consists mainly of leaves, particularly those from the cecropia tree. Sloths have a specialized digestive system that allows them to extract nutrients from the tough, fibrous leaves that make up their diet. They are also known to occasionally eat fruits and flowers, and have even been observed eating insects and small vertebrates on rare occasions.
