2013: the year sloths made news
It’s been an amazing year for me and Slothville. A LITTLE BOOK OF SLOTH made the New York Times best seller list and was published in Brazil, MEET THE SLOTHS became an 8 part global series for Discovery and I collaborated with Jumping Pages to produce the Adopt A Sloth App that teaches kids about sloths, lets them care for one and raises money for sloth conservation.
You can see me and CC from Staten Island zoo talk all about it on Fox breakfast on New Years Day. Next year there are even more exciting developments at Slothville. Keep following sloth fans and have a mellow New Year!
DAILY SLOTH: PUMPKIN
In the wild baby sloths spend their first first six months clinging to their mum as she cruises her treetop superhighway. The orphans at the Aviarios sloth sanctuary all get a stuffed toy to hug as soon as they arrive. Often they become utterly inseparable like Pumpkin here and his toy dog who he refuses to let go of even at bath time. Which has somewhat soggy consequences.
