If there’s one thing that sloths are good at, it’s sleeping… so why not have a sleepover with one? Rainier, Oregon’s Zoological Wildlife Conservation Center has a Sloth Sanctuary Center that’s offering the chance to do just that!
You’ll arrive at 8 p.m. (when the sloths are at their most active… “active” being a relative term, of course) and meet your roommates for the evening. You can feed and pet them, and you should feel free to ask any questions to the designated staff member who will be around the whole time. When bedtime rolls around, you’ll drift off to sleep in a tented cot inside the sanctuary… right alongside the (likely also sleeping) sloths.
Before you leave the next morning, you might even get to meet another resident of the Center… and, of course, you’ll get to take home an exclusive “I Slept With A Sloth” t-shirt. If you don’t have all night to spend hanging around, the Center also offers 40-minute educational sloth encounters as well.
The Center is super dedicated to the animals they care for, so not only does a visit here get you tons of info on these unique animals AND some epic selfies, you’re also helping support them as they do great things for the animals. Aww!
