We got to meet 4 of the adult two- and three-toed sloths who were permanent residents for one reason or another, but also got to play with some of the babies who for the most part had been brought in orphaned and in need of care. So cute and soft and furry, and the sweetest little faces on them – how anyone could consciously hurt these beautiful, gentle creatures is beyond me, but they do …
One little guy called Udu had been orphaned and injured so has no use of his lower legs, but as a consequence is actually faster than his two-toed buddies as he is quicker with his upper arms
So, anyone else get a hand-hickey from a paraplegic baby sloth this week? …. No? …. Just me then ... ;-)
Anyways the pictures speak for themselves, but I am totally smitten …
