Why do sloths move so slow?

Sloths move slowly to conserve energy. In fact, they move slower than any other mammal on earth, trekking about 125 feet a day.

Sloths move slow due to their diet and their digestive system, it slows them down. This is helpful, many predators don't see them!

God created them that way.
