Sloths only poop about once a week, strategically minimizing their vulnerability.

Sloths, renowned for their leisurely pace, have a unique bathroom routine that aligns with their unhurried lifestyle. These creatures, with their slow metabolism, manage to survive on just two leaves per day. The infrequency of their bowel movements—once a week—serves a crucial purpose beyond mere slowness. Descending from the canopy to defecate exposes sloths to potential predators, making this rare activity a calculated risk in their survival strategy.
