We went to a Sloth Sanctuary in Costa Rica. they save baby sloths and raise them and care for them the rest of their lives. if you want more details, just ask!! :P
Even if she does she can't go back
I feel bad for her. I hope she recovers.
Ok thanks I don't remember what type of Sloth she is my family hasn't been in Costa Rica for six months
Yes but others may not know. There other species of Sloths. This is actually a pale throated. The others are:
Pygmy three-toed sloth (Bradypus pygmaeus)
Maned sloth (Bradypus torquatus)
Brown-throated sloth (Bradypus variegatus)
Linnaeus’s two-toed sloth (Choloepus didactylus)
Hoffman’s two-toed sloth (Choloepus hoffmanni)
Thanks @ Jellis and by to way the sloth is a three toed sloth.
Thanks @ Mark Ridgway
