Brown-throated Three-toed Sloth

    Newer Older

    This Brown-throated Three-toed Sloth (Bradypus variegatus) was discovered floating in the middle of the canal during a boat tour of Costa Rica's Tortuguero National Park. The sloth appeared to have run out of steam halfway across the canal, and was a potential snack for a hungry crocodile. The guides decided to help him out, offering a paddle to climb onto and a lift over to the opposite side of the canal. Here he sits on the bow of the boat, looking fairly serene.
