Three toes on a two-toed sloth

three toed two-toed sloth

This was the first time I saw a two-toed sloth up close. This was one of two orphaned sloths that were being fostered until they could be released. To keep them safe they were in a tub with the bamboo lattice that they could hang from. This is the hind foot of one of them. Two-toed sloths have two toes on their front feet, and three on the back. The surface of the sole of the foot has an amazing texture, so soft. CaƱa Blanca Resort and animal sanctuary, Costa Rica.
