We're back from our sloth adventure! Here's one of the sanctuary-inspired gems that STM came up with:
"Mega-Carrot vs. Slothasaurus! Watch it slowly eat its way through the giant root vegetable. Action packed! Thrilling! Well, actually, a little bit dull, but never mind."
 or click here

A few relevant notes here:

1. That evening, we had been talking about the spine-chillingly bad modern B movie "Mega-Shark vs. Giant Octopus".

2. One of the tasks involved in preparing the sloths' afternoon meal was to peel a hundred of the most ENORMOUS carrots you've have ever seen.

3. At the sanctuary, there is a life-sized statue of a 25-foot sloth ancestor from the dinosaur-era.


  1. Oooh, I think I saw the bones of that creature in the natural history museum. :D Neat.

  2. I can see it now when STM comes out to talk. "Is that a gigantic carrot in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?"

  3. Yay!!! You're back!!! I missed you yesterday - was worried there had been some sort of tragic sloth-related accident!

  4. Why can't sloths eat carrot peals? Lazy buggers!

    1. I was wondering why the carrots had to be peeled, too.

  5. Heh heh...both those pictures are highly suggestive.... ;)

  6. I went to film school with a guy who worked on that movie. lol

  7. Sorry, but as a paleontologist-to-be, I have to nitpick. Giant Ground Sloths (most likely Megatherium or a close relation) were common in the age of giant mammals - millions of years after the dinosaurs. In fact, they only died out between 10 and 14 thousand years ago. It would be more correct to say that they are from "the last ice age."

    Coincidentally, if you've seen the Ice Age movies, the creature you're talking about is what was portrayed as "Sid".

  8. Damn, Tygerwolfe beat me to it. I can only add that the dying out of giant sloths has been attributed to human influence.

  11. Brilliant! Also, on a side note, my boyfriend and I are going to be volunteering at the sloth sanctuary in a week - all because of you! xoxo

  12. Wow, Karen...I'm not used to you making grammar mistakes - you're so diligent! But you said "you've have" which is definitely redundant. In other news, that's the most gigantic carrot I've ever seen. Did STM talk at all when you were away? Are you going to share his ramblings with us??

  13. Firstly: Yay, you're back!

    Secondly: Oh gosh, I know that movie all too well. >_< It was part of a B-Movie Marathon my friend and I had. Mega-Shark vs Giant Octopus indeed; the thing doesn't even have a good ending. Although, Mega Piranha is a much worse movie.
