This is a spotting of a Hoffmann's two-toed sloth, one of two species of two-toed sloth, and the only one living in Central America. It was spotted hanging upside down from a branch slowly eating leaves. It was moving around the branch at an extremely slow pace. Sloths generally get off a tree only once a week to urinate and defecate.
Tree branch in a rural part of Cahuita, very close to Playa Grande.
Spotted in Cahuita, Costa Rica.
