While traveling to Costa Rica, I just had to visit the Sloth Sanctuary in Puerto Limon! As a true lover of all animals, and active in the wellness of rescued animals, this was top on my list to visit.
Sloths are slow-moving tree-dwellers of Central and South America. They spend their lives in the tropical rain forests, mostly hanging upside-down! Their faces have “smiles” and they are one the sweetest creatures on earth!
My sister and I took the “Buttercup Tour”, which was really awe-inspiring of these unique little creatures. As these gentle animals are very, very, very slow to move, they become targets for cruel people. Many are also rescued from streets and power lines.
Here is my personal photo gallery from visiting these loving creatures while they recuperate towards good health at the Sloth Sanctuary:
