Sloth Alert: The St. Louis Aquarium Will Have a Sloth Encounter
I. CAN. NOT. FREAKING. WAIT.
I was scrolling through Facebook this morning and saw that my friend Tara Groves shared a social media post from some random website called Sloth of the Day. Well, according to SlothOfTheDay.com, the St. Louis Aquarium is going to be home to a sloth.
I am already in love.
Now, I did a quick search online to see if I could verify this information. There's good news!! I did find mention of a sloth in a preview article shared by FamilyVacationsUs.com.
According to that article, "Guests will also have the chance to get up close and personal with a sloth who will be in the main floor area, with a handler of course!"
And, even more exciting, I found mention of the sloth in the "Galleries" section on the St. Louis Aquarium's official website!! According to the aquarium, you can "meet a sleepy sloth or a curious owl." Sign me up for both. But I want to cuddle with the sloth.
I am so pumped about this. Normally, I don't like lazy creatures of any kind, but the sloths are so flippin' cute.
General Admission tickets for the St. Louis Aquarium are on sale now online. Adult tickets are $25. Children 3 to 12 are $18. The St. Louis Aquarium is set to open on Christmas Day.
