Three-toed sloth road escort in Washington DC



We came across this three-toed sloth struggling to cross the road between Arenal Volcano and San Jose. We formed a loose cordon to keep cars from running the guy over. He made it, slowly.

To answer some questions in the comments:
a) it took 5-10 minutes for the sloth to cross half the road
b) it was covered in bugs and algae and had long sharp claws – no way were we going to pick that thing up
c) WE DIDN’T CARRY A BROOM WITH US.
