Many animals will have to adapt and change due to the long term effects of climate change. This includes many animals we know and love, such as the sloth. Sloths are known to be slow creatures, but it has its downfalls (literally). As climate change occurs, rainforests are affected by weather changes that cause trees to fall down or animal habitats to be destroyed. Sloths spend a lot of their time in trees, but many unfortunately die due to branches of trees breaking off and the sloth not being quick enough to save itself. In the future, sloths may develop webs between their limbs and hooks on their toes. The webs would allow a sloth to glide through the air, in case their branch breaks off. They could then glide to other trees, where the hooks on their toes would latch onto other branches for safety.
