Presumably Horace was referring to one of the 7 Deadly Sins and not to this harmless little guy. In May of 2009 I was fortunate enough to visit the Peruvian Amazon and I got up close and personal with this fella — the humble sloth . Maybe it’s because they like their sleep as much as I do, or maybe it’s that little smile they always seem to have on their face; either way, they get two thumbs up (or is that three?) in my book.
