Amazin' Amazon Mystery Animals

Mystery Animal #9: Home Sweet Hairy Home

(Scroll down to read the poem in straight lines.)

Home to many, I live in a tree
Clinging to branches as my tenants cling to me
I'm trunk-gray but look leaf-green
For my coated coat renders me unseen
I'm hooked on limbs and hooked on leaves
Dangling quite comfortably in my canopy trapeze
Upside down, I'm never found on the ground
Quite polite, I'm a slightly odd sight
Inclined to eschew the jungle's commotion
I find my amusement in humble slow motion
Lair of the beetle and den of the moth
I'm none other than a three-toed ____________.
