Sloths can turn their heads up to 270 degrees. More than 60 million years ago, the sloth’s superorder ancestor, Xenarthra, first inhabited the earth as a group of placental mammals. Today, they can only be found in the Americas, represented by anteaters, tree sloths and armadillos. Sloths have a wide range of sight.
The three-toed sloths can turn their heads almost 270 degrees, which is ideal for any animal that needs to keep an eye out for predators at all times and moves only 6 to 8 feet per minute. In all their slowness, the sloth seems not to shy away from danger as they opt to take their weekly bathroom break in the same spot, making them quite vulnerable to predators.
