The Sloth: Nature’s Coolest Customer
收藏文章

  Many people who have viewed footage of sloths in the wild probably don’t think too highly of this animal, which is characterized by its slow movement and tendency to spend most of its time sleeping or hanging from trees. The sloth not only moves slowly but also takes up to a month to digest its food! However, the sloth may not be as lazy as we think. Here are some interesting facts that could change your perception of one of nature’s most relaxed-looking creatures.
  As mentioned, sloths spend a significant portion of their lives sleeping, but not all of their time is spent in this manner. In fact, wild sloths rarely rest for over 10 hours at a time, which is not much more than the average human sleeps in a night. However, sloths in captivity typically sleep for 15 to 20 hours per day.
  Sloths can be found in trees most of the time because they are vulnerable to predators. For protection, their fur contains algae that make it green and serve to camouflage” the animal in the rainforest. Therefore, contrary to common belief, a sloth’s frequent refusal to come down from its tree is not due to laziness but rather because a tree is the safest place for it.
  One final fun fact about sloths is their incredible strength. Sloths are very strong swimmers; they actually can do the breaststroke with ease. Moreover, if a sloth dies while hanging from a tree, its grip on the branch is so powerful that it will often continue to hang there even in death!
  With all the enjoyable information, hopefully your impression of one of the world’s most slow-footed animals has changed a bit!

(C) To

(D) To introduce the idea that sloths may not be as lazy as people think.
--------------------------------------
2. What contrast
 between wild sloths and captive sloths is made in the passage?
(A) Wild sloths tend to sleep less than those kept in zoos.
(B) Compared with captive sloths, wild ones are smaller in size.
(C) Sloths in captivity eat more food than those that live in nature.

中文翻譯&答案

讓人「樹懶」起敬的慢活動物~
  

許多看過野生樹懶影片的人對這種動物的評價可能不會太高,牠們的特點就是行動緩慢且往往會花大部分的時間睡覺或是吊在樹上。樹懶不只行動緩慢,還會花上多達一個月的時間來消化食物!不過,樹懶可能不像我們想像的那麼懶惰。以下是一些可能改變你對這種大自然看似最放鬆生物之一看法的有趣真相。
  就像剛剛說過的,樹懶一生大部分的時間都在睡覺,但也不是所有的時候都這樣度過。事實上,野生樹懶很少一次休息超過十個小時,這沒有比人類一晚的平均睡眠時間多多少。不過,人工圈養的樹懶一天通常會睡十五至二十小時。
  樹懶大部分的時間都在樹上是因為牠們很容易受到掠食者的攻擊。為了保護自己,牠們的毛皮中含有能使牠們變綠的藻類,在熱帶雨林中起到以保護色偽裝的作用。因此,與普遍看法不同的是,樹懶經常不願從樹上下來不是因為牠懶惰,而是因為樹木就是牠最安全的棲身之所。
  關於樹懶的最後一個有趣真相是牠們驚人的力氣。樹懶是非常厲害的游泳健將,牠們實際上可以輕鬆地游蛙式。此外,如果樹懶在吊在樹上時死掉,由於其抓住樹枝的力量很強,因此就算是死後也常常會繼續吊在原處!
  知道了這所有的有趣資訊後,希望你對於這世上速度最慢的其中一種動物的印象已經有了一些轉變!
--------------------------------------
1. 第一段的主旨是什麼?
(A) 強調樹懶有多麼懶惰。
(B) 討論樹懶吃一餐要花多長時間。
(C) 詳細說明樹懶的行為和其自然棲息地。
(D) 介紹樹懶可能不像人們想像一樣懶惰的概念。
--------------------------------------
2. 本文做出野生樹懶和圈養樹懶間的何種對比?
(A) 野生樹懶往往比動物園飼養的樹懶睡得少。
(B) 相較於圈養樹懶,野生樹懶的體型較小。
(C) 圈養的樹懶吃得比生活在大自然的樹懶多。
(D) 為了保護自己,野生樹懶的行動比圈養樹懶快。
--------------------------------------
3. 下列哪一項是第三段 “camouflage” 的例子?
(A) 鳥類在樹上築巢。
(B) 人類遇到熊時裝死。
(C) 章魚透過改變皮膚顏色藏身。
(D) 蝴蝶從色彩繽紛的花朵上採集花蜜。
--------------------------------------
4. 本文提及哪一點來作為例子說明樹懶的驚人力氣?
(A) 牠使用利爪來擊退掠食者。
(B) 牠即使死後仍繼續抓緊樹枝。
(C) 牠能夠連續吊在樹上十小時。
(D) 牠比熱帶雨林裡的其他動物游得都快。
