i finished my tree sloth drawing! i am so happy with it. This pen and ink drawing is 6 x 6 inches. While researching sloths for this drawing I learned a few facinating facts. Most mammals have their fur growing down in the direction of their limbs, but the tree sloth has its fur growing in the opposite direction as an adaptation to spending most of their lives hanging upside down. they even sleep upside down! their bodies have evolved so it is effortless for them to hang in this position. They are lovely shy creatures.
