360 | Costa Rica Sloth

If we learn one thing from this sloth, let it be to "take it slow, look around and smile." Driving away from Manuel Antonio National Park in southern Costa Rica early in the morning, we saw the slow-moving form of a 3-toed sloth crawl onto the road. Immediately recognizing the animal, we pulled over and began to warn and direct oncoming traffic to make sure it made it across the busy road safely. Once across the road and out of danger, the sloth took a good look around and beelined it for the nearest tree, completely unhurried or worried about the people surrounding it and with the enigmatic smile that all sloths seem to have. It cruised up the tree and left behind silent advice that seemed to tell everyone to slow down, look around, and smile.
