A question from Mark Anderson: "Did anyone watch the show this weekend, I think it was on Nat Geo, about possible sightings and/or myths about Giant Sloths in Brazil?"

Anyone see it or can comment on them?

To gather concrete information on the creature, Spain must gain the confidence of the local tribes. He takes part in an extreme initiation ritual: wearing gloves lined with venomous bullet ants.

Nat. Geo. lost it's credibility years ago. Many of their t.v. shows feature "monsters", ghosts and other stupid stuff that isn't based on reality because thats the junk people like. A similiar show is "River Monsters" featuring Jeremy Wade, although that runs on Animal Planet, not Nat. Geo. I actually do like that show, but the monster premise is dumb.

There might be a giant sloth in the Amazon, and I'm sure there are many local Indian legends about fearsome monster creatures perhaps relating to such an animal. I'll probably enjoy watching the show, I just have to filter out the sensationalism.
