Hope you're doing well Lizzie!
Hang on, what do sloths do with their poo? I could google it, but may as well put your poo expertise to use ;)

Haha. I detailed it a couple of months back on AP ;) essentially they get mega constipated and almost die every time they poo!
But yep, I'm doing better than a pooing sloth :)

Don't they lose 1/3 of their bodyweight? And also only poo once a week so that they won't get eaten while they're on the ground?

I know this thread is about sloths but I'm sure you'll appreciate what I learned through observation this weekend: alpacas use communal latrines!
