Slow News Day

Busch Gardens Tampa is welcoming not just one, but two baby sloths, born March 24 and April 2. The babies are doing well, although one of them needs some extra attention with nursing. They’re hanging out with their moms behind the scenes, but are expected to make a public debut soon. More pictures at Busch Gardens website.

“They are so teeny and cute,” squees sender-inner ffleur2.

    Slooow neeews daaay. I think Sloths are my spirit animal. Yup. I’m am happily living in the slooow lane.

      I think we all know that life in the fast lane surely makes you lose your mind. You’ve made a good choice.

      • Faye April 22, 2016 / 11:52 am

        I move slow and cling to my pillows but I’m so not as cute. Or tiny. Lol.

    • Lurkingduck April 22, 2016 / 11:58 am

      No bunnies in the fast lane.

      • allein April 22, 2016 / 12:03 pm

        That must be why her quest is not working out!

      • Faye April 22, 2016 / 3:19 pm

        Duckie it’s more like the turtle and the hare. I’m the turtle and I can’t catch up to any bunnies.

    I’m off work today, it’s raining here and I decided to imitate the sloths and do nothing really slowly.

    • Faye April 22, 2016 / 3:17 pm

      That is a learned technique. Admirable.
