There’s Been A Sloth At The KC Zoo For A Year And I Didn’t Know
Okay, so I'm not like, super obsessed with sloths, but... I love them.They're like, top five animals to see at the zoo, for me. And apparently there has been a sloth named Arnie at the Kansas City Zoo for like, a whole year!
I know I live under a rock, but COME ON. How did I not know? His full name is Arenal, which is a Costa Rican volcano, I hear. He likes fruits, veggies and greens but his favorite foods are sweet potatoes and grapes. He's about three years old and weighs a little over 20 pounds. He came from a zoo in Canada, so you know he's super polite, too.
I just can't believe it. There's an adorable little slow sloth just waiting for me to go visit him. I'm sorry, Arnie. I bet you've been patiently waiting, just looking out for me, and I never showed.
I'll have to rectify this at some point, you know. We're not headed to the city for a while, but next time we go, I'm making a point to go see Arnie. What is it about sloths that just make me want to love them forever? I have no idea. I hear they smell like popcorn.
One day, Arnie. One day, you and I shall meet. It will be glorious. We'll make eye contact, and you'll know it's me.
