That's why you're supposed to stay under the canopy, stupid.
"Maintaining a high body temperature also takes energy. Sloths reduce this cost by maintaining a lower average body temperature than other mammals. Dogs, cats, horses, sheep, rabbits, pigs, and cows all have average body temperatures between 100 and 103°F, but a sloth's average body temperature is 93°F.
Just as important, a sloth's body temperature fluctuates with the ambient temperature. Like snakes, frogs, and other "cold-blooded" creatures, a sloth's body temperature is highest on warm, sunny days, and lowest at night and on rainy days. Sometimes a sloth sunbathes in the morning to warm up. Then, during the hottest part of the day, it hides in the shade so it won't overheat. During a 24-hour period, a sloth's body temperature may vary as much as 10°F. If the body temperature of a person, a dog, or a cow varies just 5°F, it can be life threatening."
"Hey what's tha--YOWWW!"
Damn I think they were about to show a Pit Viper killing a Sloth or something
Sorry sloth but I love those birds of prey so very much
I like how they added in a "thwack" sound when the sloth got hit
Death of Slowpoke.
