VIDEO: Costa Rican sloths to be featured in ‘Sloth Week’

June 11, 2014

One Costa Rican mammal is creeping its way into the Internet spotlight… very… slowly.

That’s right, sloths are taking the InterWebs by storm with “Sloth Week,” six whole days of sloth-related Web content starting June 20. Sponsored by Animal Planet and Animalist, Sloth Week will be an online tribute to the sluggish creatures featuring daily footage from the Sloth Sanctuary of Costa Rica.

Sloth enthusiasts will be able to laze alongside the furry creatures all week at SlothWeek.com and Animal Planet’s website, enjoying daily updates of sloth facts, listicles and sloth videos. On June 21 at 8 a.m. EST, Animal Planet will also re-air their two-hour special, “Meet the Sloths,” which follows a year in the lives of five sloths at the sloth sanctuary.
