Sloths in Panama are truly interesting animals. I personally had one as a pet for a while. Of course, it too ended up at Summit Gardens with the other wildlife there. They are very strong animals, but you must respect that they are wild, and can hurt you.

Rhinoceros beetles, they look really scarey. My Father saw them at the Pedro Miguel Locks area often, and would bring them home to show us. They really scared me.

My family had a yellow head parrot, named Peetie. She was such a great pet--so full of love. She sang a lot--just like an opera singer. She'd laugh at you if you dropped something. I can remember once when some repairs to my stove were being done, and I left the room--upon my return, the repairman told me how rude I was to laugh whenever he dropped his tool. I told him it must have been the parrot---but, I don't think he believed me. Oh well. She's still alive, about 50 years old now, and it's my understanding that she could easily live to be over 100 years old!
