The Power of Sloth

The Power of the Sloth

The Power of Sloth is my homage to the world’s laziest mammal and features my funny photos and facts about these massively misunderstood animals. As founder of the Sloth Appreciation Society, this NY Times best-seller follows on from my award-winning documentaries and viral videos about sloths.
