My Favorite Five – “Lulu”

Three-toed sloth

I decided before I post my best of nine for 2018, I would post my favorite five posts from 2018 and see what the difference is. It was hard making my decision and when I started compiling them, I noticed a trend. This year was the years of firsts. It was my first time raising monarch butterflies, photographing frozen soap bubbles, and getting to hold Lulu, a three-toed sloth, then photographing her. It was only my second year photographing black bears. I guess they are my new loves and that is why they all made my favorite five!

Lulu lives on the tropical island of Costa Rica. She cooperated and let me take photographs of her—I even got to hold her. 

Her hair was coarse, and she weighed less than my eleven-pound dog. I now have a fetish for sloths!

 Three-toed sloths are aboral which means they spend most of their time in trees. They mainly eat leaves but also eat fruit and flowers. 

About every seven days, they come out of the trees to use the bathroom. They use their tail to dig a hole and do their business in the hole. Who knew?

Now, one hangs from my computer—only it’s stuffed!
