    • Let’s get slothed!

      June 12, 2022 in Suriname ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

      If you were, for some reason, to consider the digestion of a sloth, you wouldn’t be surprised to learn that it’s quite slow. In fact, they descend from the tree tops just once a week to poop, which is odd considering how vulnerable they are on the ground. There are a few resident sloths at the marina here and one was spotted last Friday dragging itself along the sand. So I have been conducting a sloth stake-out, but sadly must have missed the ablution date. However, this morning, a juvenile sloth fell out of its tree (the height of failure, I should imagine, in the sloth world) but luckily it landed in some water and was fine. We saw it crawling along the ground (and it looked a lot like me after a jug of margaritas 😂) but it was a bit disoriented so one of the marina staff picked it up and put it back in a tree. Thankfully it was a three-toed sloth, as apparently the two-toed variety screech and scratch and bite. We then watched it slowly ascend and disappear into the canopy of leaves and my heart was happy. Seeing a sloth was the number one item on my list for Suriname, mainly because I think that we might actually be related. 😁Read more
