Wordless Wednesday - Wide-Awake Sloth

There's a cool little zoo near our house. They have a sloth. This is what she usually looks like. A ball of orange-brown fur tucked in a tree.

In all the years my daughter and I have been going to the zoo, we've never seen the sloth awake. Until one day. . .

She's awake! And eating a piece of lettuce.

Apparently she rarely leaves this tree.

Sloths aren't lazy . . . they're just very mellow!

I'm linking up with these great Wordless Wednesday blogs!

  1. Ha ha. Love it. cute shots.

  2. Once when we were there, one of her keepers was trying to coax her down from her perch with a piece of fruit. We watched, as it took her FOREVER to get down, it was amazing and so interesting! There are days I feel just like that sloth....

  3. I definitely feel like a sloth somedays, especially in winter.

  4. Very nice photos of an interesting creature. Some days I feel like doing that too.
