Green algae grow in the fur of the South American sloth. The green algae provide camouflage for this tree-doweling mammal, and from the fur and skin of the sloth the algae obtain moisture. A moth also lives in the fur. The moth larvae provide waste material used by the algae as a fertilizer for new growth.
