What is better than a sloth taking a boat ride? Nothing. Really. In my opinion.
There I was surfing YouTube (as I do on occasion) when along came this video. I cannot recall if I was feeling particularly despondent at the time but my mood immediately perked up. Everyone nowadays pontificates re the virtues of mindfulness. At that moment in time, I did not realize that the one thing that would offer me bliss would be watching a sloth on a boat ride running his hand through the river.
I adore sloths. Ever since I watched ‘Ice Age’ I fell in love with them. ‘Sid the Sloth’ is my kinda guy. Well intentioned, kind, funny with a smidgen of eccentricity thrown in for good luck.
The fact that the sloth is doing something that a human would do is alarming. But then again lately I seem to be happening upon more and more examples of animals eliciting behavior that was previously only seen in humans.
All I need now to make my life complete is to see a sloth on the back of a humpback whale with a scuba tank so that he can stay on his back whilst the whale dives beneath the sea. Maybe they can add that into the next Ice Age movie? I ‘ll email them my suggestion and let you know how I get on.
That’s all for now
