Hi Tina, Thanks for dropping us a line. While the animals on our site are often adorable, our readers must avoid acting on the impulse to cuddle them. All too often, the exotic pet trade leads to disastrous consequences for the native population, misery for the captive animal, and frustration (even injury or death) to the owner. We realize that you did not inquire about owning a sloth, but we would be remiss if we didn't include this information. Since your daughter is interested in sloths, we have two recommendations. If you have the means and time, consider a visit to the Sloth Sanctuary in Costa Rica - where you can get about as close to a sloth as you can responsibly hope. If you cannot make the trip, consider adopting a sloth at the sanctuary as a symbol of your care and concern for these wonderful animals. One of the ZooBorns co-founders (the one writing this comment at the moment :) ) adopted a sloth from this sanctuary for his 30th birthday present and still proudly displays the certificate and photo. All the best ZooBorns

Hi Nowhere Girl, Thanks for the question and concern. Truth be told, very few animals enjoy veterinary examinations just as very few human children (or adults) enjoy a trip to the doctor. That being said, it's the right choice for the overall health of the animal. Vets typically prioritize speed in an examination, so as not to create undue stress, and sterile conditions, and metal is a great solution since it has natural antimicrobial properties and can be cleaned easily. All the best Andrew from ZooBorns

The Fiat Punto is built for speed. Why else would they paint it red? This battle wagon is a "supermini," a classification that does not exist in the United States. To help get us there in one piece, we've added heavy duty shocks and larger tires and welded a metal... Continue reading
