5 Reasons Why Sloths Make Good Pets
Good Pets– The obsession over sloths shot up when the internet came up with some really good sloth memes. These cute animals became quite famous and people started adopting them. Although this exotic animal costs really high, people still want a sloth family member.
Here are 5 reasons why sloths make good pets –
1. They won’t run away like your dog
Or fly away like your parrot! Thanks to their slow speed, these animals are hard to escape. Even if you get distracted for a while, you won’t have to worry because chances are the maximum distance they’d have covered is from one side of the road to another. They…….are………so………slowwwww.
2. They have a long lifespan
The average lifespan of a sloth is 25-30 years. This is a good news because you won’t have to start planning its funeral the day you bring it home.
3. They are low-maintenance
These cuddly pets have an easygoing temperature, which means you will not have to turn on your A.C. 24/7. They happen to have a calm nature and are usually good with small children. They are not destructive monsters like cats and, therefore, your couches and cushions are safe. And just like their slow speed, they have a slow metabolism, too. So, if you ever forget to feed it, don’t worry, it won’t die. (That doesn’t mean you can starve it!)
4. They don’t stink
Admit it, however cute a dog or cat is, it stinks real bad if not groomed on time! The not-so-almighty lazy sloth has evolved into an odourless creature so that it can go undetected from its hunters because this animal can’t run for its life!
5. They make you smile
If their permanent smiling face fails to make you smile, looking at them every time will remind you of those darn funny memes and THAT will definitely give you a toothy smile.
