11 Reasons You Should Love Sloths

Recently, they've been blowing up the internet. Everywhere you look is a sloth video. But what do you actually know about them? They're slow? Check. They sleep a lot? Perhaps. So, I'm here to give you a few fun facts about the worlds greatest mammal. Or should I say mammals.

1. Sloths come in two varieties: two-toed and three-toed.

2. Sloths all have three toes... the two-toed only have two fingers.

3. Sloths can live to be 40 years old.

5. Sloths go to the bathroom the same place every time - so basically they use a bathroom.

6. Sloths only go TO said bathroom once a week.

7. Sloths are wonderful swimmers.

8. Sloths, like college students, are nocturnal.

9. Sloth fur is covered in algae.

10. Sloths have a four-part stomach, which is why they don't go to the bathroom often.

11. Sloths can legally be kept as pets in certain states (at least...they don't say you can't...).

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.
