If you've ever thought yourself to be lazy, science can practically guarantee that you'll never be as lazy as a sloth. Well, perhaps "lazy" isn't the right
Part of Miami Attraction Month, Jungle Island has decided to debut a new sloth encounter that for a fee of $30 (in addition to the $26.95 park entrance) allows guests to feed and gently pet a sloth. New Times was invited to experience the attraction first hand. Check out the video and see how adorable Penelope the baby sloth is as she hangs upside down and sleepily stares at the camera.
