An Illustrious Early Morning Visitor

Good Morning!!

Look who came for breakfast yesterday!!
A Two-Toed Tree Sloth Climbed in To Say “Hi”

Weighing in at about 20 pound, usually staying in the tops
of the trees, he climbed down for a quick visit, before he went back
to his natural habitat:)

A very rare appearance in our backyard! We are more used to seeing the 5-clawed
Indoor Albino Rug Sloth in our Home:):)

    • I love that comparison J.!! Yes a “Contact Blessing” Perfect!! It truly was a blessing and a gift and as you say, Mr. Sloth in his slow -mo graceful swing through life, can teach us so much:) I thought of your spider visitor and now, my sloth guest…He just stayed low to the ground a short while..but he was definitely observing us..as we were observing him…Another Inter species Close Encounter of the Natural Kind:):) A Blessing indeed!!โค๏ธ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒน๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿ•ท๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐ŸŽˆ

    I’ve long wondered what these things do when a predator arrives… do they have 2nd gear? ๐Ÿ™‚ Great little slice of nature.

    • Thank you for commenting..They have few natural predators..maybe, jaguars and big cats and Eagles will try to prey on the young, but a full grown sloth, even if he slowly embeds his 5 inch claws into an enemy, is respected. Their greatest survival tactic is their slow movements and their camouflage techniques.

  8. This is such a cute video! I want to apologize to you, Karima, for the comments that a couple of people on WordPress made to you on one of my posts. The woman had some valid questions and concerns, but the man was just outright cruel, and I told him so. Please don’t stop visiting because of a couple of bozos.
