Is there anything cuter than a squeaking sloth. I think not. 

Warning: this video will make your heart melt.

Please enjoy and share my latest sloth video. I think its a corker and produced to celebrate the publication of my new book, THE POWER OF SLOTH out April 10th 2014.

My homage to the world’s laziest animal - THE POWER OF SLOTH - hits British bookstores tomorrow and is full of unbearably cute photos of my favourite dozy folivore.

Here’s Chepe enjoying a little hammock time at the AIUNAU sloth sanctuary in Colombia. The genius of a sloth’s physiology is that they naturally hook on and hang from branches like a living happy hairy hammock. But Chepe arrived at the sanctuary with a badly injured back leg, which could no longer function, so he needs additional support in order to exercise his sloth-like right to relax.

2013: the year sloths made news

It’s been an amazing year for me and Slothville. A LITTLE BOOK OF SLOTH made the New York Times best seller list and was published in Brazil, MEET THE SLOTHS became an 8 part global series for Discovery and I collaborated with Jumping Pages to produce the Adopt A Sloth App that teaches kids about sloths, lets them care for one and raises money for sloth conservation. 

You can see me and CC from Staten Island zoo talk all about it on Fox breakfast on New Years Day. Next year there are even more exciting developments at Slothville. Keep following sloth fans and have a mellow New Year!

The hills are alive…with the sound of sloths!
The Sound Of Music gets sloth-ed. And I couldn’t be happier….
