I think there would not be any sloth without these moss, moths and other parasites.

Thank you Karen! I couldn't get close enough to be able to see that. but from the greenish color on its neck you are probably right.

Nice spot! I can't tell from this photo if the sloth has moss growing in its fur - if it does you might like to add this to the Symbiotic Relationships mission.
