Three toed sloth

10 posts in this topic

Taken in Costa Rica. These guys normally stay well hidden, so it was great to get such a clear view.

 

Taken from a boat, so not pin sharp, but not bad!

I think those are excellent! I've been lucky to see sloth a few times in Costa Rica and have some photos but not nearly as good as those!

This was on the grounds of our hotel in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica (wildlife is very habituated here). It was extremely slow on the ground but climbed very fast up the vine.

My old eyes may deceive me.

 

What was the color scheme for the sloth, as you recall it?

 

Those are quite the photos, with several colors.

 

To this day I've never seen a living sloth anywhere.

 

Thanks for posting these.

@Tom Kellie Sloths have green algae (and other organisms) growing on their fur so it was brownish gray tinged with green.

The only sloths I've ever seen were in zoos and in the corners of their exhibits so the photos aren't the best. What a special animal to see. Great photos also.
