The mysterious and agonizingly slow three-toed sloth has made a road-crossing appearance in Costa Rica. As the sloth approaches a busy thoroughfare, an official comes to the rescue and helps it across.
Sloths are born to live in trees. They have extremely weak hind legs, which makes them slow afoot. They also sleep a ton — sometimes 15 to 20 hours a day. The name comes from the three claws protruding from each front foot.
