When it rains, it pours

16 Jul

It has been since May that we have seen any sloths roaming thru the trees around our house.  So today there were two females, one alone and the mom and baby again.  Good to see that the baby is doing fine and getting a bit bigger each time we see them.  Maybe it’s the rain that brings them out, not sure but since we found the tiny baby 2-toed at the bottom of our tree the other week we have been worried about the other baby in the neighborhood.

Some day we expect to see the small one on her own going from tree to tree finding only the best of leaves a sloth could want!!

The week old 2-toed baby was taken to the rescue center to see if they could possibly nurse it back to good health and have not heard any news.  There seemed to be a lot of baby sloths being dropped lately not sure why.  Our fingers are crossed on this one.  An update:  we just talked with the folks from the center and it seems this little one didn’t survive.  It fell to the ground from about 60 feet so chances were slim to begin with.
