Yesterday, I stayed late in the forest finishing up fieldwork with three other students and our professor. While the last student, was finishing her project, a group of people came by. They were releasing rescued sloths!
One of the two-toed sloths had a baby with her.
We got to watch them climb up the trees, one at a time. Between us we took hundreds of pictures. And then we got to hold one of the sloths! It was such an amazing experience.
I felt so unbelievably lucky to get this experience–and we were all so glad her work took that long!
