These last couple of days have been kicking my butt. On top of the issues that are already present, I’ve been sick. I don’t know what it is, but I feel like I’ve been hit by a bus. Maybe this isn’t a fair statement, since thankfully, I’ve never been hit by one? Anyway…
Sometimes when I need a little pick-me-up (and right now, I do), I look at pictures and videos of sloths. What’s not to love about their adorable smiling faces?! They are my favorite animal and I’m hoping that one day I’ll get the chance to hold one!
A few fun facts for you:
- Sloths can travel on land only 6-8 feet per minute, but are great swimmers and move faster in water.
- They have an extremely slow digestive system and their diet provides minimal energy.
- The two-toed sloth is slightly larger than the three-toed.
- Algae grows on the fur of sloths. To their advantage, the green color helps them blend in and stay safe from predators.
That’s all for now.😊 Back to my videos…
Is there something that helps lift your spirits (even if it’s only for a moment)?
