    Costa Rica is a sloth sanctuary
    Known for its wonderful Sloth Sanctuary, Costa Rica gives you a chance to see these beautiful creatures up close and personal.

     September 30, 2017
    This rescue and rehabilitation facility in Limón Province is home to a number of sloths that are looked after trained staff and volunteers who work to rehabilitate them into the wild.

    The Aviarios del Caribe sanctuary was started when Buttercup the sloth was given to the owners of a hotel just outside Limon 25 years ago. From here, they realised there was more they could do and decided to open the sanctuary so they could help hand-rear sloths and rehabilitate them back into their natural habitat.

    "Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it underfoot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor but a destroyer."  St. Francis of Assisi

  • God has certainly created some very interesting creatures. In Genesis, it is said that man was to be a care-taken (a steward) of God' creation.

    In one video clip, there was a police officer who picked up a sloth at the back of his neck and carried him across a busy highway. The sloth did not resist. That is where he wanted to go.
    Lord have mercy.

    Okay, maybe it's my browser, but the link check keeps getting kicked. Perhaps you could, e.g., google Merriam-Web?

    Short answer, "It depends." 

    English English = as in "pope"

    American English = as in "pop"
    "Lord, have mercy".

    In the UK, the vowel in sloth is a diphthong which is pronounced like the one found in low.
