A Three-toed sloth is a strange creature. It's average life span is approximately 20 years and is as large as a medium-sized dog, it has a small head, flat face with a snub nose, beady eyes, and extremely poor hearing.
Its bony arms are well-developed as are its large claws since it spends a great deal of its life hanging upside down in trees. Illustrated here is one which is descending to the forest floor, perhaps to relieve itself which it does maybe once a week. I observed this particular sloth in this gallery for some time near the apartment I rented for a month in late 2009 in Manuel Antonio. Nikon D300 + Nikkor 300 f/2.8 VR - 300mm - 450mm in 35mm terms.
