This graduation season, give the gift of SLOTH
This week's featured post on baby sloths comes courtesy of my best friend Sarah, and once again, the Zooborns website!!! Sure, everybody knows that sloths love to party (courtesy of a certain SNL sketch), but did you also know that the little ones are totallllly cute? (I needed to think of a word besides adorable or heartwarming. The English language does not have enough. No--never enough for this blog.) This fellow above is a Bradypus sloth who lives at the Aviarios Sloth Sanctuary in Costa Rica, the world's only sloth sanctuary. They give injured or orphaned sloths a home, and are all about sloth education efforts. Here's a video of some baby sloths at the sanctuary:
Check out the Aviarios site's adoption program!
Adopt me! The perfect gift for that someone special.
More incredible features of the site include: A volunteer program that you don't have to spend a ton of money to participate in! An opportunity to sleep with sloths living, sleeping, and playing around you!! That's right, there's a small, veeeery affordable boutique hotel at the sanctuary. Seriously, nearly any one of my friends (HINT STRONG HINT) could afford this as a nice gift for me, as say, a birthday gift, or even a Thursday gift. There is also a section entitled "Sloth Magic" where you can read stories about sloth's effects on people's lives. Seriously, this is good stuff. Sloths 4EVA!!!
