Convento La Popa, Cartegena, October 19th, 2012
At the entrance to the Convento La Popa (a beautiful spot high up and affording great views of Cartegena), there were lots of people selling things to earn money from the tourists. We opted to buy our photo with a sloth.
It was a very cute creature. Tony was did a bit of web research about keeping sloths as pets. It can be done. But, I noted that they live for 25 to 30 years and that they like to mark their territory with dung middens.
