Happy trails!

Today's sloth is really happy because he is going on a trip tomorrow! He'll be driving around the northern countryside visiting friends, relaxing on the road, and tasting lots of different plants. Sloths will miss you, and will be back for your viewing enjoyment next Tuesday!

A sloth is born!

Behold!  With the coming of spring, a newborn sloth appears, ready to hang onto fur and focus intently on the incisors of its thoroughly exhausted mother.  Is it more tiring to give birth or be born?  None can say, but all are looking forward to more sunshine, blossoms, new leaves and new sloths to celebrate birth and rebirth happening all around.

Today's sloth would like to sleep in a little. Keep the radio on low and turn off the teakettle before it whistles. It's only polite; he'd do the same for you.

What's that you say?

"The Great Muppet Caper has just arrived in my mailbox from Netflix? Sweet sloth, it's my lucky day! Gonzo's definitely my favorite. But those little rats are pretty hilarious too. See you in 1.3 hours."

Sometimes things turn upside down.

And sometimes it's just a sloth with a netted roof. Wheeeeeeeeee!

Reminder of the day: Don't forget to play.

Today's sloth doesn't care about a little freezing drizzle. She just wants to party in the forest - and she's in luck, because she's found a fresh patch of treepods to dangle with. Remember to have fun and not take life too seriously! And when you lose track of your daily joy, come on back and check her out; we promise it'll put a (lazy) spring in your step.

Bear left! Right frog!

Today's sloth loves a good Muppet Movie joke as much as the next guy. And as soon as he gets his little face out of that kelly green plush, he'll do his best Fozzie impression for you. Happy spring weekend to all of you, from all of us at slothoftheday.

Please sir, I require some assistance.

Today's sloth is generous enough to lend a helping claw (or three) to a human in need. He knows he'll get a brand new plastic tub out of it, and maybe even some cuddly stuffed animals. So come on - follow his lead! Sprinkle some random kindness out in the world! Maybe you'll even hit someone you like! And when you do, you can thank sloths for the opportunity.

Disasters affect everyone

Today's sloth is trying so hard to get to a phone to make sure his friends in Japan are all right. He's so concerned and worried! The news just keeps getting worse! Give him a ride to the phone booth if you can spare a seat.

The return of the sloths!

Dear readers, thank you for your patience while our sloths took a week off. Sometimes sloths get too busy to pose for photographs. But now they're back, and they're more joyfully lethargic than ever. Today's sloth is very particular about the fruits he would like in his smoothie, and he demonstrates here exactly how he wants them chopped and blended. Bananas first!

What's better than a cuddly fabric shoulder?

If you're like today's sloth, you know the answer to this question is NOTHING! Now turn off the computer and go have yourself a fabulous weekend of playing outdoors.

Sloths + Michael Pollan = 4eva

Today's sloth has taken the wise food-writer's words to heart: "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." Then again, she was doing this even before she read the Omnivore's Dilemma. Looks like it's a match made in tropical paradise...

Rarrrrr! Raarrrrrrr!! RAAAARRRRRR!!!

Today's sloth is SO MAD! Probably because someone took her carrots, which she adores so dearly and defends with her very life. Please, for the love of sloths, we beg you: return them to her before the slow-motion biting begins!! No questions asked.

Today's sloth is so famous

because he's hobnobbing with some of the biggest names in hipster film today. You can't see them, but they're rilly rilly popular and they're totally petting him. Hence the gleeful howling pose. Awoooooooooooo!
