Scientists give up experiments to entice sloth to move




Scientists in the eastern German city of Jena said today they have finally given up after three years of failed attempts to entice a sloth into budging as part of an experiment in animal movement.

The sloth, named Mats, was sent to a zoo after consistently refusing to climb up and then back down a pole, as part of an experiment conducted by scientists at the University of Jena's Institute of Systematic Zoology and Evolutionary Biology.

Not even pounds of cucumbers or plates of home-made spaghetti were appetising enough to make Mats move.

``Mats obviously wanted absolutely nothing to do with furthering science,'' said Axel Burchardt, a university spokesman.

Mats' new home is the zoo in the north-western city of Duisburg where, according to all reports, he is very comfortable.

The thing is, how can I motivate him to sign something for me?

Many thanks for posting this. Most sensible thing I've read on ATS in weeks.
