Three-toed sloth (Bradypus variegatus)<br />
Manu National Park, Peru<br />
The three-toed sloth moves deliberately through the canopy of the South American Amazon.  These unassuming leaf-eaters are known for hanging upside down and exhibiting extraordinary lassitude--evolutionary traits that enable them to avoid the notice of sharp-eyed birds of prey.  The harpy eagle often dines upon the sloths, which weigh only seven to ten pounds.
