A sloth debate

A two-toed sloth is seen awake on exhibit at the Stone Zoo. Anyone else see THREE toes?

According to wikipedia: “the ‘two-toed’ for these sloths is a misnomer as they have three toes; they only have two fingers, though.” Uh, Why not call it what it really is?

    Not absolutely sure but I think the two toed sloth has three toes on its hind legs and what we are seeing is both the front and back leg as the sloth hangs in its usual pose in a fabulous Schwalm photo.
