There isn’t an exact population count available. Sloths live in the rainforest canopy, not moving often, which makes siting them difficult.
There are a few different species of sloths. Information below on a few of these types was summarized from the IUCN Red List.
*Pygmy three-toed sloth (Bradypus pygmaues): This is a critically endangered species. It only lives on the Bocas del Toro islands of Panama, and the population is estimated to be under 500.
*Maned three-toed sloth (Bradypus torquatus): This is a vulnerable species. It lives in the Atlantic Forest in Eastern Brazil. Population estimates weren’t provided, but it is believed to be decreasing overall.
*Pale-throated sloth (Bradypus tridactylus): This species is of least concern in the endangered categories. Exact estimates of its numbers weren’t available, but this type of sloth was reported as abundant in Brazil, Venezuela, Suriname, Guyana, and French Guiana.
