    Recently I received a nice postcard from Costa Rica.
A postcard with a 3 Toed Sloth.
    On the card it has:
    PEREZOSO
    THREE TOED SLOTH
    PARESSEUX

    Poor creature has a bad reputation with that kinda name!
And considerin' it has been around longer than most other animals,
it's a shame.
    I was wondering if this seems to be common practise in other languages -
natlangs and conlangs - to use a word meaning "lazy/laziness" to mean the
(demean) the animal?  Are there any exceptions to this nasty libel &
defamation of the sloth character???
