Attack of the Giant Sloth!!!!

Sloths have always been my favorite animal. All of my friends know that I love them. I have a poster of a sloth on my wall at home, and my friend even made me a homemade stuffed sloth out of material he found at JoAnn Fabrics! How could you not love these creatures? They have 3 toes.They always have a funny look on their face. They’re incredibly slow, and they’re terrified of leaving the trees that they live in.

You can imagine how incredibly excited I was to hear that a REAL LIFE SLOTH WAS COMING TO THE GRAND RAPIDS PUBLIC LIBRARY!!!! I thought i’d have to travel to South America to catch a glimpse of this unique creature, but we are fortunate enough to have the LARGEST sloth in the United States come to GRPL on June 22 and 23!

Along with Seven the sloth, there will also be a snapping turtle, rare frogs, and a python!

Check out this adorable video of a sloth orphanage!
