Up to 6 feet in length, males can weigh up to 310lbs, females weigh up to 210lbs.
Sloth bears are very agile climbing large trees with ease and moving quickly around their environment, even though they can weigh between 200-400 pounds. Using long, curved thick claws and a large snout, they dig into deteriorating logs, blow the dust away and then suck up termites like a vacuum cleaner. With a hollow palate and have no upper incisors, eating their food is easy. In addition to eating termites and insects, Sloth bears also enjoy fruits, honey, peanut butter and larvae.
