I forgot to mention something about the sloth. Since I wasn’t allowed to touch him, I had to pick him up with a blanket when I needed to get him off the ground. So I would put the blanket in front of him so he’d just climb onto it and then I could wrap him up and take him back to point A. After an hour or so, when I would do that, he’d avoid it like the plague! Amazing. He knew that the blanket meant getting off the ground, back to a place he didn’t want to go. Wow. That didn’t take long at all. So then I’d have to pick him up from the top, but then his little claws would cling onto the grass and it was hard to get him. Smart little dude.
So just when I thought it couldn’t get any cuter…check this out. I was holding a different sloth and he started licking his lips and then yawned. I noticed when I’d rub his head and neck he’d yawn again so I was able to catch it.
