Nice balanced sloth facts
on 31 May 2017
A beautiful DVD full of interesting information about Sloths - my wife's favourite animal. Each episode contains a mix of day-to-day life at the Costa Rica Sloth Sanctuary, sloth facts, the characters of the individual sloths and harsher truths about life as a sloth.
I will say that not every episode is cheerful fun - by its very nature life at a rescue centre is not all fun and games and we do see sick and injured sloths and sloths do pass away during the program, but it is handled with sensitivity and the greatest of respect and the episodes are balanced on the whole. If your kids are sloth fans I suggest watching first yourself to decide if every episode is suitable for younger or sensitive children.
Importantly is is made clear why many sloths that end up at the sanctuary cannot then be released into the wild, especially the babies - this is significant as at a glance it can look a little like they're keeping a lot of wild sloths in cages as pets! This could not be further from the truth, and they are working to release Sloths whenever possible.
