I had just been saying I wanted to see a sloth, (I really wasn’t whining, really) when the guide pointed up and said, “There’s one.” Now, of course, I find out that they are pretty common. There are both 2 and 3-toed Sloths here. The larger 2-toed sloth eats the tender young leaves
while the 3-toed eats the older ones.
I am full of lunch and like the slow-moving Sloth, not too motivated. So it’s time for siesta. I’m going out again on a bird tour at 3.
The line mark down this guy’s back means he is male, or so I have been told.

I saw a sloth (not sure which species) just recently at the Dallas Aquarium, of all places. I took my niece – who had a great time – but I felt sorry for the animals and stopped taking pictures about halfway through. Seeing these sloths in the wild must have been great – I enjoyed your photos.
Feeling lucky and awesome in Panama! Sweet!
