Weekly Smile #43

Is it not wonderful to smile so much?

There is a picture on my computer (when it goes to sleep)

and it changes every second day or so.

There are amazing pictures of nature, famous sites, animals etc.

The picture this week made me smile.

I do love sloths and this one has

a sweet smile too.

Here are some interesting fun facts about sloths:

  • Sloths have a four-part stomach that very slowly digests the tough leaves they eat, it can sometimes take up to a month for them to digest a meal. Digesting this diet means a sloth has very little energy left to move around making it one of the slowest moving animals in the world.
  • Sloths can move along the ground at just 2 m (6.5 ft) per minute! In the trees they are slightly quicker at 3 m (10 ft) per minute.
  • Sloths can extend their tongues 10 to 12 inches out of their mouths.
  • The sloth has very long, sharp, and strong claws that they use to hold on to tree branches. The claws are also their only natural defense against predators.
  • Sloths usually only leave the tree they live in to go to the toilet once a week on the ground. This is when they are most vulnerable to being attacked by their main predators such as jaguars, the harpy eagle and snakes.
  • Two-toed sloths are nocturnal, being most active at night. While three-toed sloths are diurnal which means they are most active during the day.
  • It used to be thought sloths slept for 15 to 20 hours a day. However, its now believed they only sleep around 10 hours a day.

My most favourite sloth is though

Sid the sloth from Ice Age

such a fun, smiley, positive guy

who can resist his smile…. ?

Hello September – Make it simple

Standard

Untitled

 

After the holiday season of August I am back to working routine.

Yet I am very relaxed and take it easy.

So I will….

Make life simple,

Don’t multi task,

Do one thing at a time,

Take my time,

Enjoy what I am doing.
