    two ideas that I have:

    There should be two kinds of sloths, the three toed sloth and the two toed sloth. The three toed sloth would be always a passive mob and the two toed sloth will be a neutral mob and if attacked you can get a short period of slowness.

    They will drop a very rare item when killed, Claws. Claws would be a hand held object that would let you climb short walls (about 3 blocks at once)

    Another great addition to having sloths would be that over time, sloths will accumulate moss and that can be harvested from their fur using shears. With 9 pieces of moss, you can craft 2 vines. Sloths should also be able to hang off of the player like a backpack and can golf at least one item in their hands. They can’t be tamed, however they can be bred using cocoa beans. I hope to one day see my favourite animal in Minecraft!

    What if you can tame a sloth and let it ride your back that would be really cool and amazing you could tame them with leaves and they can love eating fruit like a panda loves eating cake. And add something for them to sleep in

    I think the two-toed should only hit when you hit them

    This might be controversial, but I feel like if anything, it should be ground sloths instead. They can introduce new utility and an impressive look without a risk from mojang, due to them being extinct in real life.

    They could be tame-able and sleep on your shoulder like parrots when they are pets

    I don’t think that they should have death drops cause that would be so sad. How about they EAT SPIDERS AND eat a new mob “the mosquito”if they’re too close so that they’re not useless

    Plus like the axolotol Minecraft can use the sloth to create awareness for endangerment of sloths

    I like the idea of Sloths acting as actual backpacks. They could be given items to hold while on your back

    They shold be domesticable and they drop Claws also when you give them another rare item or when they grow up.

    I'm glad that I'm not the only person that thinks sloths should be in the game. If only more people would vote for this maybe it would actually be put in the game.

    I like the idea of sloths, but I think that they should be added differently. They spawn in subareas of jungles where it rains a lot (rainforests). They climb along trees and eat leaves. If you break a rainforest leaf, there is a chance it will give you a cecropia leaf that can breed sloths. When breeded, their baby crawls on a parent's back until it grows up. They are very slow, and they can either be three-toed or two-toed. They are neutral mobs that will only attack you if you punch it. They should have 10-15 health points. If you can put a lead on a baby sloth or attract it with a cecropia leaf before it can crawl onto it's parent's back, it will be tamed, and will crawl along the floor slowly, following you. If it catches up, it will climb on your back and hug you. Sloths will only drop leaves. The cecropia leaf is poisonous, but can make a potion of slowness. When a tamed baby sloth grows up, it will still be tamed. You can "sit" a tamed sloth, or make it fall asleep. When you do so, it will climb onto a wall if it is two or less blocks away from it. They can be two-toed or three-toed sloths. When climbing a tree, there is a 50% chance the sloth will fall asleep. They are bad fighters, and if they are attacked, they will hit you, but it only does one heart. Like llamas, they will hit you as many times as you hit them. If a sloth sees you kill a baby sloth, it will attack until you are dead and will do two hearts rather than one.

    I believe that sloths could be sheared and they could drop moss carpet and/or block; this would be an ez alternative to spending hours looking for a lush cave and it would make sense seeing as though sloths actually grow algae on themselves. Hope u like my suggestion! :D

    Sloths should be a slow mob that lives in jungle trees, if you were to use a spawn egg it would have a 50% chance to be a three or a two towed sloth you can tame them with leafs and tame them as a pet wich you could make sit and like a parret can go on your shoulder the sloth could go on your head, if you attack a 3 towed it would climb up higher but if you hit a 2 towed it would attack you back, it would also drop leaf x2 and sloth fur for a new carpet. The two different sloths would drop different colors of fur.

    There's not much mobs that live in trees so it would be cool if sloths were a thing in Minecraft. I really like sloths because they are unique by being slow, and all the other mobs are not slow.
