Three-toed sloth – Costa Rica 2019

Three-toed sloth. On our recent trip to Costa Rica we searched for sloths. These are quite common animals but very hard to spot since they live mostly in the tree canopy. Their colour makes them appear as a bunch of leaves. This animal put on a great display, scratching almost every part of its anatomy – albeit slowly! The video was taken by my wife, Jenny Varley whilst I did the editing.
