Monteverde, Costa Rica – Sloths
A quick note about sloths:
They are considered the second laziest animal, next to the koala. They look like a giant mass of fur up in the tree – but with Aaron’s eagle eye he has captured their cute little faces. About once a week they come out of the tree to take a poo, and then go back into the tree. We saw a lot of sloth “action” when one of them s-l-o-w-l-y stretched and another time when one s-l-o-w-l-y reached for a leaf to eat. That is about all there is to say about the sleepy sloth.
Yep, that’s a really active sloth. It moved a little.
The night hike guides were mighty impressed, too! We were doubly lucky as the one we saw during the day in a random tree along the road also moved. Yay for movement!
