Cutest Sloth Ever Rescued in Ecuador, Now in Happy Habitat

The cutest sloth I’ve ever seen was rescued from the side of the road in Quevedo, Ecuador. Thank -you Transit Commission of Ecuador for saving this little guy! He is now living in a habitat in Ecuador where we is well-cared for.

 

Seriously, have you ever seen a sloth this adorable?!

How the sloth was found originally, looking cute as ever.

The Transit Commission of Ecuador wrote the following on their Facebook Page: “Thank you all for your concern. We inform you that the sloth rescued by our soldiers was checked by a vet, who determined that it was in optimal conditions for return to their habitat. Thanke we have all these people who were interested in the health of the animal. We continue to support this type of case with the cooperation of the citizens. Greetings to all.”

I believe this is the Hoffmann’s two-toed sloth, based on pictures I’ve found online, and the wikipedia, but I don’t know for sure.
