Sloths are pretty strange creatures. Sure, Nature has a time and a place for pretty much everything, but much like the duck-billed platypus, which is one part beaver, one part duck, one part cute and one part OMG SCARY (you know it’s poisonous, right?), the sloth seems to serve no evolutionary purpose. It’s like Mama Nature just said, “Hey, remember that freaky platypus thing we made? Here are some extra parts and stuff that would go great in a rainforest! So we’ll just make them into a long-armed, furry, lazy weirdo! It’ll be a riot!”
The Three-toed sloth spends spends its time hanging out in trees in the Central and South American rainforests it calls home. It moves so slowly that it starts gathering moss on its fur, looking like some sort of freakish lab accident instead of an arboreal mammal who favors tropical climates. Then it only leaves the trees once a week to relieve itself on the forest floor before hauling its fluffy carcass back high into the green canopy.
Whatever your thoughts are about seemingly out of the ordinary evolutionary choices, Fiesta’s sloth is pretty…cute. Yeah, cute is a good word! Fiesta Toy brings the tree-dwelling bum of the animal kingdom to life in all its furry glory! Whatever you want to do, this guy is game. Just sling him over your shoulders and hook his soft claws together to clasp his long arms around your chest. It’s like you have your very own sloth baby!
