fayhelfer: If you find yourself in NYC this weekend, check out all the great art at ‘Last Rites Gallery' - My piece showing is 'Heart Beet' pyrography, pastel, and natural pigments on wood (turmeric, kanku, indigo and beet) ~ 12” x 22” framed
Sloth fur is a messy business. Their long, coarse hairs, riddled with deep grooves or cracks, provide a place to live for a wide variety of organisms ranging from algae, fungi, ciliates, and nematode roundworms to cockroaches, moths, and beetles. Sloth fur often shows a greenish tint which is due to symbiotic green algae. This discoloration is thought to provide camouflage for the sloths among the foliage of their arboreal habitat.
