It has been a fun weekend for me, since last night I discovered a momma sloth and her baby in a tree right across from my patio! I wish I had noticed earlier in the day, or been able to watch them climb the tree, but by the time I noticed them it was already starting to get dark. I first fell in love with sloths when I was in Costa Rica last year. There is no way that you can resist those sweet faces that look like they are smiling!
Today I stalked the sloths again, complete with my binoculars (thanks Sean!). However it was a bit of a bust, since they slept curled up around each other in a tree. All. Day. Absolutely no action. But I guess that's what kind of endears them to me also. All they do is eat, sleep, and scratch...so it's a pretty laid back life.
