Is that a sloth crawling out of that toilet?

"Why, hello there!"
Sloths are slow-moving creatures. REALLY slow-moving. This gives the sloth plenty of time to think about what it's doing.

So why, oh WHY, are sloths in Peru climbing into outhouses and eating human poop?

The fine website Tetrapod Zoology has a report on this strange behavior. It's not known if the sloths want the salt in human pee, or maybe the bugs in human poop.

But however you look at it, it's not very appealing!
