A not so lazy sloth...

Hi all,

 

Came across this, and thought it might interest a few of you:

Those ground sloths are really my favorite, they're gigantic but still have a cute/gentle look. And they're architectural masters too.

I've seen this, very interesting. Ground sloths were known to live in caves (the caverns full of dung in US) but the thought they could make there own is truly amazing.

Doesn't say... Maybe the sloths flattened the soil around
