International Sloth Day

Today is International Sloth Day, and since I am feeling a bit slothful I will just post a few pictures.

Omaha Zoo, Henry Doorly Zoo, Tiger Bite, Drunk Woman, Stupid PeopleThe pictures of a sloth were taken at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo. The best zoo in the country.

I think that I may have some pictures of sloths from other zoos, but am a bit slothful tonight so am not going to try and find them.

I really like this baby Gorilla.
