Heres Why Sloths Do Not Make Good Pets
Two-toed sloths are rising in popularity as exotic pets. They are very calm, slow-moving creatures who eat special diets, are quiet, need a lot of trees to climb on, and can live up to 30 years, making them suitable only for the most seasoned of exotic pet owners who are ready, willing, and able to handle the exotic needs of a sloth for many years. Two-toed sloths do not like to be petted or groomed. They move slowly and spend much of their day hanging and not walking. Sloths are wild animals and are not domesticated. They adhere to their natural instincts and do not like to be petted, groomed, or bathed. Unlike most other animals, they do not show obvious external signs of stress.

A while ago, the internet went crazy over the story of a five-month-old baby girl and her best friend: a pet sloth. The story was accompanied by photos and a video that quickly went viral, attracting attention from all over the world. The photos are admittedly cute and the resultant media-splash catapulted sloths back into the spotlight but we fear that the negative repercussions may have outweighed the benefits on this one.
