Slothy Saturday: Happy Mother’s Day from this momma sloth
While we here at The Tico Times usually publish sloth photos on Sundays, today we’re celebrating a day early.
Janet Sandi, Animal Care Coordinator at Toucan Rescue Ranch in Costa Rica, captured these photos of a sloth mother and her baby — the perfect pictures to share on Mother’s Day!
Sloth claws are designed for trees, but that’s not all they’re used for. As National Geographic explains, sloth babies will cling to the hair of their mother’s back or stomach until they can begin crawling on branches.
Aren’t moms great?
Happy Mother’s Day from The Tico Times and Toucan Rescue Ranch!
