Sloths Are Being Illegally Sold In Colombia!

Kristen Bell would not be a fan of this!

The third most profitable criminal activity in Colombia, after drugs and weapons, is the exotic wildlife trade. An estimated 60,000 animals were trafficked last year including a large amount of sloths!

Which is a BIG problem because sloths, despite their cuteness, are not meant to be household pets!

They have a highly specialized diet according to one zoologist.

Here's what the zoologist said:

"They're highly specialized animals. That's why you don't find them in zoos. You don't find three-fingered sloths in zoos in the States because they're so difficult to keep. So the idea that any old Joe could just keep one as a pet is a bit of a fantasy, really."

That zoologist, along with Nightline, decided to check out Cordoba in Colombia because that is where sloths are a big ticket item in the sale of wildlife exotic animals.

Their mission got a wee bit more dangerous than they thought it would be after they convinced a local animal trafficker to sell them a sloth.

Check out their story by watching the video (above) !!!
