Sloth-crossing signs are a familiar sight in Costa Rica, where the slow-moving creatures abound. Injured and orphaned sloths have found tender loving care at the Sloth Sanctuary, run by Judy Avey-Arroyo, Luis Arroyo, and their family.
Since 1992, the Sloth Sanctuary has rescued more than 500 sloths, treating and releasing as many as it can and providing a permanent home for those unable to survive in the wild due to disability or other issues.
Presenting the world’s most expensive chocolate bunny! It can be yours, if around $50,000 is in your chocolate-bunny-buying price range. Made from super-fancy Tanzania Origin chocolate, this rarefied rabbit is fifteen inches tall and features gold-leaf Easter eggs and 1.7 carat solitaire diamond eyes. Feast your eyes, if not your taste buds, on this brilliant bun-bun!
As for me, my price range and common sense leads to this old favorite. BBE’s eyes aren’t diamonds, but they’re so much cuter.
Quokkas are marsupials about the size of a house cat. Quokkas are natural smilers. Quokkas are not camera shy. Australians are cozying up to quokkas in record numbers lately for selfies. Turn that frown upside down down under and snap a quokka today!
How many times have you used a crummy pencil sharpener, only to have the lead of your pencil break off again and again? Russian artist Salavat Fidai sharpens his pencils by hand and sculpts the lead while he’s at it.
Behold, his Number Two Dark Knight!
And his graphite Lord Vader.
Salavat has an Etsystore, if you’d like to keep a piece of his art in your pencil cup. Also, keep a magnifying glass handy.
☞ As far back as Callum can really remember, he's been living in the Wild as the furless mascot of a wolf pack. But when his pack sends him back to live with his own kind—humans—fitting in is quite a challenge. He doesn't remember English very well, so he accidentally says his name is "Clam." He's spent most of his life eating fresh-killed elk, so dining with vegetarians is tricky. And when he tries to impress the Alpha student in the school cafeteria by stealing food, people seem offended!
You might see it in paperback!
