This is my Story...

When I arrived at the Centre after being abandoned by my mother and found by a citizen on the ground, I was only a few days old.

I’m one of the most unique sloths the JRC has ever received! Why? Well, I’m a Two-Fingered Sloth born with only one claw on each hand and foot!

I will not be able to be released due to my condition. It is unethical to release me into the wild due to the probability that I may reproduce and pass on this defect to my offspring.

When adopting Floqui, the proceeds will be going towards tracking sloths with radio collars.

Two-finger Sloth(Choloepus hoffmanni)

Two-Finger Sloths commonly and mistakenly named two-toed sloths (Choloepus Hoffmanni) are found in the forests of Central and Southern America.

As you can see in the pictures it is not on their toes where they lack a toe, but in fact on their upper limbs on the hands, that is why earlier we described the common name as mistaken.

These slow animals that survive on a leaf-based diet tend to live most of their lives aloft, few times you will see them on the ground, some occasions might be in order to reach another tree even by water or to defecate. Sloth’s fur is grown specifically to create a natural camouflage.

Facts about two-finger Sloths

Sloths have very poor eyesight and hearing, so they rely on touching and smelling for food.

The only time sloths are found standing properly is when they go to the ground to defecate, and they only do this almost once a week.

The hair grows in a special system of being parted along the stomach and flows from belly to back. This system is helpful for when the sloths are hanging upside down and the rainwater can runoff.
