Slothy Sunday: Just hanging out

May 26, 2019

Last week, Denise Gillen, a sloth nanny from the Toucan Rescue Ranch, shared the story of Bon Jovi, a sloth that had illegally been sold as a pet.

Thankfully, the Environment and Energy Ministry (MINAE) brought Bon Jovi to the Toucan Rescue Ranch, where the arboreal mammal has assimilated into the group of other baby sloths and continues his journey toward his release into the wild.

Via Toucan Rescue Ranch.

Enjoy these new photos of Bon Jovi at the Toucan Rescue Ranch, and stay tuned for more inspiring sloth stories in the weeks to come!
