Sloths are always hanging upside down in a dense forest in high branches.
The food of sloth is leaves in low calorie. There is no much meat in the body of a sloth.
Larger predators are not interested in eating sloth. For larger birds sloth is heavy to lift. Generally predators ignore the sloth.
For defense sloths are equipped with large claws. These sharp claws with powerful nails can rip the predator. In short sloths can defend themselves with the help of claws.
