The animal kingdom’s romance stories keep getting juicer. First, there were the Cichlid fish who swoon their mates by building sandcastles, and now, we have the soap opera like drama of the sloths! The Animal Planet video, “Saucy Samantha Calls for Suitors,” features an almost Shakespearean tale of drama among three sloths in a sanctuary and a sloth from the wild. The scene is from the show “Meet the Sloths” on Animal Planet.

Samantha and Darla are two female sloths at a Costa Rican Sanctuary. The two screech out their ear piercing mating calls, which attracts an outside visitor they named Brad. Brad is a wild sloth, who was lured into the sanctuary by Darla’s mating call.

Once Brad entered the sanctuary, the soap opera drama begins! Although Brad was enticed by Darla’s call, it was Samantha who caught his attention once inside. However, Samantha has a long term male companion Mr. Sunshine, who doesn’t like Brad’s presence. Watch the video to see what happens!

I know if breeding happens too close together it can be detrimental to the health of the mama and baby/babies. Did she already have babies?

Saucy Samantha had just abandoned her babies and they don't want her pregnant again.

I don't understand enough about sloth behavior. Because she was willing to cheat on Mr. Sunshine, she cannot go back to the cage with him? Do domesticated sloths behave differently than ones int he wild?

Carol - it is a sloth sanctuary where they rehabilitate rescued sloths.

Why do they have to be in a jail-like environment, surrounded by beautiful Costa Rica, their natural habitat?
