I admit it…….

Iā€™m obsessed with sloths!!  Today Sarah and Rene took me with them as a volunteer at the Jaguar Rescue Center in Puerto Viejo and I took this video of a tiny two month old baby sloth.

Me and Al PacinoMy job today started with cleaning the outside glass in the snake area and then raking the grounds for what seemed forever.  When I was done with that I spent most of the rest of the day with the animals ā€“ primarily the sloths.  Three of the sloths were old enough to be out climbing on the tree where we were but two were too little.  I fed one for about an hour and then they brought out this tiny one so it could have some sun. 

I also got to have Al Pacino ā€“ a baby howler monkey ā€“ crawl around on me for awhile.  That is until he tried to get away and climb a tree and then one of the more experienced volunteers took over. 

All in all it was just a great day but I am totally exhausted tonight.  Definitely an early bed Smile
