Budapest ZOO 2008 March

The living sloths comprise 6 species of medium-sized mammals that live in Central and South America belonging to the families Megalonychidae and Bradypodidae, part of the order Pilosa. Most scientists call the sloth suborder Folivora, while some call it Phyllophaga. Both names mean "leaf-eaters", the first is Latin-, the second Ancient Greek-based.

This article mainly deals with the living tree-dwelling sloths. Until geologically recent times, large ground sloths such as Megatherium lived in South America and parts of North America, but along with many other animals they disappeared immediately after the arrival of humans on the continent. Much evidence suggests that human activity contributed to the extinction of the American megafauna, like that of far northern Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and Madagascar. However, simultaneous climate change that came with the end of the last Ice Age may have also played a role in some cases. In addition it must be remembered that most ground sloth lineages were long extinct even before humans settled the Americas.
