A while back, I saw the famous youtube video where the sloth crosses the road in, well, in a slothfully slow way (its name hasn’t been adjectived for nothin’). But I couldn’t embed it here. So I explored the ‘net and found dozens of similar videos—damn, those sloths like to cross roads! Either I couldn’t embed them or they were pretty bad quality. I finally found this one. You get a really nice look at the fascinating creature.
Then I thought I’d look for Howler monkey videos because when we went to Costa Rica with the family, we were all gobsmacked by the sound they make. Video doesn’t quite do it justice—it’s more like a crazed demon from a bad horror film—but here’s a nice taste of their song (and you truly can hear them everywhere).
And last but not least, I saw this yesterday on Facebook—it’s not Costa Rica, but it just slayed me. A gorilla was returned to the wild in Africa and then, after five years, reunited with his trainer. The bond between them should erase any doubts you might have about animals and souls.
You can still enter to go to Costa Rica too. And us—we’re counting the days!!!
