As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. Anyone that owns (or has ever owned) a dog knows that they each have their own unique personalities. I remember our family dog very well – a wonderful Golden Retriever named “Spencer”. True to his retriever breed, Spencer loved to bring something when he greeted someone – a toy, a sock, a ball, a slipper, a stick, a branch…..pretty much anything that he could find and that he could hold in his mouth. If Spencer was still with us today, I wonder what he would have thought of the product that Read More

Can Sloths Be Pets? They Are So Cute, But…..

How many people have considered having a sloth as a pet? After all, they are gentle, lovable, adorable creatures. They are the slowest-moving mammal (and one of the slowest-moving animals) on the planet, so there is very little chance that a pet sloth would ever make a mad dash and escape, chasing after the kids in the neighbourhood. They eat mostly leaves, so food costs should be very low, shouldn’t they? So, can sloths be pets? In this article, I will explore this idea further in an attempt to come up with an answer to this question. I will do Read More


Why Do Sloths Move Slowly? It’s About Survival

In today’s fast-paced world, speed seems to be so important to so many people.

They do almost everything in their lives at a slow, slow, slow pace. Why is this? Why do sloths move slowly? In this article, I will attempt to answer this question by going Read More


Where Do Sloths Live? Look Up…..Look Way Up!

Have you ever thought to yourself, “Where do sloths live?” After all, there are not many animals on the planet that move slower than the sloth, and there is not a mammal on the planet that moves slower than the sloth. So, they can’t just live anywhere, as there would be far too many threats to their survival. Fortunately, it appears that sloths have this figured out, at least to a certain extent. In a previous article, “Cool Sloth Facts – Learn About Them & Love Them”, I presented a general description of where sloths live (in the trees….way, way Read More


Different Types Of Sloths – How Many Are There?

When thinking about sloths, are they all the same or are there different types of sloths? Previously, I assumed that a sloth was a sloth was a sloth, but I now know that this is not the case. There are actually six species of sloths, which are divided into two categories: two-toed and three-toed. In the two-toed category, you have Hoffman’s and Linnaeus’s. For three-toed sloths, you have Brown-throated, Maned, Pale-throated, and Pygmy varieties. From a “technical” perspective, all sloths have three toes, but the two-toed ones only have two fingers. Kind of confusing, I know! In this article, I Read More
