｜INTERNATIONAL SLOTH DAY ｜ One of the best assignments I have working as an intern in TRR is being part of all the baby sloths’ development. They come here as orphans and is our work to take care of them, cover all their needs and keep them healthy. It’s so rewarding watching them grow and finally getting back to their wild life again, knowing that you were part of all this amazing process // Una de las mejores tareas que tengo trabajando como interna en TRR es el ser parte del desarrollo de estos bebes perezosos. Todos llegan aquí siendo huérfanos y es nuestra tarea cuidarlos, ver por su salud y cubrir todas sus necesidades. Es tan gratificante verlos crecer y verlos regresar a su vida salvaje, sabiendo que fuiste parte de este increíble proceso. . . . #notapet#borntobewild#backinthetrees#InternationalSlothDay#slothlove

October 20th - International Sloth Day! — Repost from @ekpurrsico: This little "perezoso" (sloth in Spanish) is super fun to say. He is a two-toed sloth of which there are two species. There are also 3 other species of three-toed sloths. The difference in naming comes from the amount of toes on their forelimbs (notice how tricky that is because they both have 3 toes on their hindlimbs). But now you won't be fooled! Their limbs are closer to the same length, they have less vertebrae in their spines, no tails, and they have shorter necks with larger eyes compared to their two-toed cousins. Sloths, in general, rarely take the time and energy to come down out of the trees. We are told that they will often purposely fall from branches to get to the ground. @centroderescateamazonico
