Sloth Yoga

On Sunday I spent the morning doing Yoga and stretching outside in the open air (just like a sloth!) in the Botanic Gardens as part of YogAdelaide 2013, put on by Lululemon.


“Adopt a Sloth” App

Have you ever wanted to adopt the cutest wild animal on the planet? The cuddle creatures are making their glorious debut on the tablet platform. With adorable animations and lots of interactive features, you can now adopt a baby girl or boy sloth and care for it—feed, wash, potty-train and kiss goodnight your little pet. Sloths are irresistible and ever since Lucy Cooke’s vimeo hit “Meet The Sloths,” they have been taking the world by storm. The app also includes “Lucy’s Hut,” a hub filled with interesting facts, photographs, articles and videos on all things sloth.

From British filmmaker and sloth expert Lucy Cooke comes a hilarious, heart-melting photographic picture book starring the laziest—and one of the cutest—animals on the planet.


Perry the Sloth

Meet Perry. Okay, I know what you’re thinking. That’s not Perry, that’s Belt from The Croods 3D Dreamworks movie. And you would be right. But when “Belt” arrived on my doorstep, I didn’t see the stone age hip-hugging sloth that he is in this fantastic movie (you’ve got to check it out, seriously he’s uber cute), I saw my dopey, snoozy, Perry. He was different to Belt. Maybe a cousin, perhaps? He can’t play the drums, and he certainly won’t wield a knife. He is the best sloth for giving hugs because his arms are so long, and he loves to sit and watch soapies with me of an evening. Having said that, you can get Belt here, but make sure you give him lots of hugs too.

The name Perry comes from the word Perezoso, which is Spanish for Sloth. Sloths are found all over the Spanish speaking country of Costa Rica.Perrysloth

And just so you don’t doubt me about how adorable Belt is in The Croods, here’s a short clip:

International Sloth Day

Last Saturday was International Sloth Day. A day to reflect on all things slow, steady, sleepy, and yawny. Sloths in fact have a lot of hardship despite their adorably cute faces. Victims of illegal trafficking, road accidents, and destruction of habitat, the life of a wild sloth these days is not good. But there are some organisations out there working tirelessly to protect this beautiful creature. See: and
