These are the most fascinating creatures Jose. They move so slowly, I wonder how they ever het to where they are going. Those feet with the two toes only looks so different and out of place. :) An excellent pic you got of it.

You could have flipped this picture so I can see it without standing on my head.

Just kidding; I was being slothful.

What a cute critter. And a super shot!

That's what a sloth looks like? I never knew!! And I use the term disparagingly quite regularly! About myself, mind you... I am less inclined to put others down...:-D

You captured the fur so wonderfully against those richly colored green leaves. I hope this young sloth doesn't get a head rush!

These animals are amazing, and you got a GREAT photo of that face! The sloth really does have moss on it.

Thanks for your compliment on my blog, JM, but I just had to look at yours and I have to say THIS is a wonderful sloth shot, now that we know how difficult wild sloths are to find. This youngster is just precious, and doesn't have green algae growing all over his/her coat yet.
