I was never a big animal person growing up, but the more I learn about animals and discover how intelligent they are, the more I have come to appreciate them. I’m torn about zoos because I love seeing all of the different species, but it would be way more fun to be able to interact more with them. Here are some of the pictures I took from the Rainforest in Cleveland, OH.

My ultimate favorite animal in the whole world, three toed sloth!!:
I hope you liked these adorable, intriguing animals as much as I did! It is so fascinating how many different species are out there, and I am glad we got a chance to see just a few of the many amazing creatures there are in the world.
