Good Samaritan Lends A Hand To A Sloth

Your random act of kindness of the day: Reddit user Dannmak noticed this sloth on the side of the road…

“A Three Toed Sloth was hanging precariously from the lower branches of a tree near the edge of the road (I live in Costa Rica).”

“I couldn’t resist the photo op.”

“The sloth was patient with me, while I took his photos.”

“He seemed semi-interested in me.”

“Little did I know, that inside he was screaming, “Please help me, I’m about to fall, I’m at the end of my branch.”“

“As he made one last stretch to climb upwards, I thanked him for the photos and turned to return my car.
I heard a plop behind me. The poor little thing lost his/her grip and dropped about 4ft. to the ground.”

“They don’t do too well on the ground and I was afraid that he would crawl towards the road, so I offered him a branch, which he accepted eagerly.”

“I walk him back into the jungle a little ways…”

“…offered him a tree to hug, again he accepted.”

“In slow motion, he made his way skyward.
A very awesome encounter with a very gentle animal.”
