Congratulations Adam, your Brown-throated Three-toed Sloth is our Spotting of the Day:

"t's customary to wear green on St Patrick's Day, including for this Brown-throated Three-toed Sloth (Bradypus variegatus), our Spotting of the Day! The often greenish appearance of brown-throated three-toed sloths is due to the presence of algae in their fur. These provide camouflage as well as a source of nutrition for the sloth.
Learn more about the three-way mutualistic relationship between sloths, moths and algae: "
