Two-toed sloth - Costa Rica



  • Sloths only come down to the ground to defecate once a week. The rest of their time is spent slowly moving in the treetops, eating and curling up in a ball to rest. They even give birth while hanging in the trees! The baby literally drops out and mom reaches down to grab it!

    While hiking down to a waterfall in Fortuna, Costa Rica, I saw this two-toed sloth climbing along the treetops. Then a little pink nose poked out!

    The original oil painting on linen canvas is AVAILABLE!

    Please inquire if you are interested in print options.
