New Study Says Giant Ancient Sloths Were Aquatic

Just when you though it was safe to get back in the water.

Sometimes I resent evolution. A study published this week in the Proceedings of Royal Society B. claims that millions of years ago, sloths were six-feet long and spent most of their lives in the water. Thank you, survival of the fittest, for depriving me of a world full of underwater sloth rides and hypnotically slow games of beach volleyball.

Monday Cute: If One of These Sloth Tees Replaced Three Wolf Moon, We’d Be Okay With It

and let it be known

Good morning. There is an Amazon retailer that sells shirts of sloths doing various things they probably shouldn't. Like stripping, attacking the Hindenburg, or co-starring in Dirty Dancing. They pretty much all come in women's sizes too. Don't say I never did anything for you.

Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Sloth Poop

Sloths are adorable, even at their grossest.

It's not surprising to hear that sloths are too chill to poop more than once a week. But why do they do it on the forest floor? Ecologists are studying the poop pilgrimage of the three-toed sloth, and the science behind it is a little weirder than what we would expect from such cute little squirts.

Sick Baby Sloths Are Shaved, Buttered, Swaddled, but Still Adorable [Video]

When baby sloths get mange, it can be particularly difficult to treat. Fortunately Judy Avey-Arroyo at the Costa Rican sloth sanctuary has a solution: A shave, a slathering in a special lard mixture, and then swaddling in bandages. The treatment looks extreme, but it seems to work and has the added benefit of leaving the sloths looking cute as all get out.

Kristen Bell Really, Really, Really Loves Sloths [VIDEO]

It's A World of Laughter A World of Tears

I am so excited to show you all this video. Why? Because Kristen Bell is really, really, really excited and it's contagious. As someone who gets extremely emotional when it comes to animals, even just watching them on television, this video makes me very sympathetic for the Veronica Mars/Forgetting Sarah Marshall actress. Her boyfriend gave her a very special present for her 31st birthday, something she'll never forget. A visit from a sloth. And yes, he captured her reaction on video and she let Ellen DeGeneres play part of it on her show even though it's kind of embarrassing. In Bell's own words, "Welcome to @theellenshow ! todays topic? Kristen Bells inability to handle her emotions!" I adore you, Kristen Bell. (via Videogum)
