Cute overloaded. I want that frog!!

article that appeared good enough to be read so that adds to knowledge when reading

wow great i have read many articles about this topic and everytime i learn something new i dont think it will ever stop always new info , Thanks for all of your hard work!

I went to this sanctuary years ago with a woman who happened to be staying at the same hostel as me. She went insane and started yelling at the people who run this place. It was horrible. We had just made it through the infirmary where they care for the injured sloths and she assumed that is where they kept the healthy ones and started screaming about they way they were treated. It was insane, she would not listen to anyone and just started yelling. We got thrown out before making it to the area where all the healthy sloths hang out. So i never got to see stuff like this. So sad!

Nice to see Chancellor Spock on your show.

nice post,excellent blog,nice work done

The frog looks very cute!

Can I help? I have the time.


Hi Lucy

Just getting to know your wonderful photos and writing. Do you have videos?
Will recommend your work at my website www.asianhealthsecrets.com

all best wishes, Letha

I'm leaving this blog with various information I learn a lot, thank you indeed. To let these links as an input, perhaps he is someone who visits your blog for you ...



Oh mah gaaaaawd. Cutest little things ever.

Did I find this site because of the sloth video? Yes, but I am going to read it because of the frogs :) So 12/09 I guess is where I start

Thank you for your comment Tina. Your question as to whether they intend to release the sloths back into the wild is a very appropriate and the first thing I asked. The good news is this year Judy will be working with a British biologist on a release programme, tagging the sloths with a new form of GPS so that their progress in the wild can be monitored. It is a very exciting prospect for the sanctuary and one I will be watching with great interest.

I am looking into this frog thing... I'd never even heard of it until now. O_O As others have said your scheme is working.

But a question about the sloths (if you would). Do the kind humans who run the hospital ever plan to release the sloths back into their habitat after they're healed, or do they mostly just keep them like pets?
Just curious, not judging... well overmuch, anyway. Mostly I'm curuious.

We've fallen in love with your sloth video. Its so sweet. I'm eleven and i think your videos are great.

I'm absolutely shocked by the behaviour of those tourists filming the sloth crossing the road. Human cruelty starts there.

Ok, you've gotten people here - now tell them how to save the frogs!

Hi Lucy - obviously the amphibians are my priority (always) but I was doing a bit of sloth research yesterday and found this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EN1Ws0JSd2U

I never knew sloths could swim!! Amazing!

And if you're in the mood for it, you could try the pimped up version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAi5vuAzzJI

I think this is my favourite blog post in the entire blogosphere!

loving the frogs. PArticularly the cute eyelash batting red eyed tree frog. But yeah. The sloths are kinda nice :D

Sloths are awesome!

Well I'm very happy indeed that so many of you want to help.

There are many things that can be done without having to open your purse.

1 Don't use pesticides and buy organic. Amphibians are very sensitive to pollution as they breathe through their skin. Atrazine in particular (the world's commonest weedkiller) is doing a top job of damaging frog populations world wide.
2 Don't eat frogs legs. Ever. Frog farms are cruel and spread disease.
3 Don't buy wild caught frogs. The illegal pet trade is devastating wild populations and also spreads disease.
4 Spread the word and support Save the Frog day on April 29th 2011.


Okay DEAL. I accept your adorable sloths in exchange for caring about super cute froggies. Especially the red eyed tree frog! I did a report on them in 3rd grade and got an A+ because of my very detailed illustrations. I would be most sad indeed to see the die out - what do we do to help?

Your scheme totally worked. I came for the sloth, but I'm down with the treefrogs. How do we help (particularly those of us with limited funding)?
