I wasn’t going to write up about this Journal article published in June, as the results basically confirm what is already known/suspected about sloths:
“These results corroborate literature reports on low intake, low defecation frequency [and] low metabolic rate…in other sloth species.”
But then this caught my attention:
“In spite of the low food intake and the low-fibre diet…methane production was rather high…”
So, turns out, sloths got gas.
