In the present, sloths live in tropical rainforests with rainy weather. They spend their time hanging on trees with the help of their long-curved claw. Sloths have long limbs that help them move through trees. Due to their slow movement, algae would grow on their fur for camouflage. Sloths can turn their head 270 degrees and are nocturnal. They also have great swimming abilities. Due to climate change, topical rainforests will turn into savannas with dry weather. In the future, sloths will have shorter limbs and claws due to the small amounts of trees in the savanna. Due to the change in weather, algae will no longer grow on their fur, causing them to lose their camouflaging ability. Sloths will have to be able to move faster to be able to get away from predators and will lose their swimming abilities.
