I can't even tell you how special it was to spend time with Bonnie and Clyde.
The room was very small maybe 8 by10 and very warm, Bonnie wasn't very social, she spent her time in the corner watching and waiting for apple slices. She has the cutest little face
Clyde on the other hand is very social, as soon as we entered the room he started making his way over to us. We were told we had 20 minutes with them but we were able to spend more time
I was amazed at how long Clyde was when he was moving on the ropes.
He wasn't as slow as I had thought, he's a sneaky little guy we were told to be a arms length away but from time to time I found myself much closer, not by my choice at times.
I fed Clyde cucumber and apples
They eat 3 times a day, 2 ounces each time, Bonnie and Clyde are 4, they can live for 30 years.
Bonnie and Clyde are two toed sloths, I was amazed at how soft their fur is.
It reminded me of a dog.
We could pet Clyde on his back, one time I caught myself almost petting his head, it just seemed natural to do so.
Do you know sloths swim, I had no idea
They have sharp teeth, part of Clyde's teeth looked bronze , that's how close I found myself when I was petting Bonnie, I turned around to that precious little face looking at me.
I thought they would hang upside down but at times Clyde was right side up.
When he stretched his arms out I could see the pads on his hands, Bonnie and Clyde both had long thick claws, they would reach out to touch you, but we were told it wasn't safe.

Seriously one of the most wonderful times I have ever experienced
It's no wonder I love them so

I have won Lorin and Charity over, they now have such a apprieation for sloths.
We took many more pictures and videos that we can look back and remember.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures
THANK YOU WALTER

What a very special day! This memory will last forever. I am so glad you were able to check it off your bucket list. I never knew sloths had soft hair it looks so coarse. All the pictures are wonderful...but my favorite is the one of you and Lorin kissing with the sloth observing in the background.
Thank you for sharing this special day with us!
