…before I continue unpacking! See this happy guy? This is how much we enjoyed the entire trip! Squeeeeeee!
Is that a sloth?!?!
He is a two-toed sloth. He was hanging out in a tree by the side of the road as our bus drove by for a hike in the rainforest. The bus pulled over and we all surrounded him and took pictures (respectfully). He blink, blink, blinked at us. That was all. 🙂
Damn, everyone else has already squeed. My squee shall not be heard over all that racket. But I shall stand here silently with a look of utter delight on my face, ok? 😀
Your delighted (ful) face may hang about as long as it wishes! 🙂
I hope he set a good example and you slothed some on your trip.
A whole lot of slothing was enjoyed! For shore!
Oh My Goodness that is SOO CUTE!!! 😀
*outSQUEEEEEEEEs the rest of the commenters* Awesome! so glad you had a good trip, looking forwards to hearing all about it – good luck getting rid of the cold!
Did you manage to go to the Sloth sanctary?
We didn’t make it to the sanctuary. We went for a rainforest hike instead, which was very cool.
squeeee! so super cute. he’s smiling upside down!
Lauri’s back! YAY! I’m sorry you’re being welcomed by snow and subzero temps, but I’m glad you had a great time! Did you hang upside down by your toes too?
Hee! Nope, no upside down hanging! Lots of sun, and relaxing reading and swimming and hiking. Oh, and eating and drinking. Yeah!
How cool! A sloth! ~blink~blink~
He looks like he just got a shampoo and a blow dry for the photo shoot! 🙂 SO CUTE! I love sloths. Kindred spirits.
Amen! I wanna toe-toed sloth!
Yay! can’t wait to hear about the trip!!! Sloths are some of my favorite critters.
what a perfect pic. could be a postcard.
love the upside-down smilie
A sloth in his natural habitat!
Adorable…I’ll have to see where you went.
He’s such a cutie. So glad you had a great trip!! I missed you! 😛
Awww! Great shot too! Such a face! Is that a rhododendron?
I don’t think it’s a Rhododendron, but there are several trees that look totally similar to this one… in my eyes… I am fairly useless at identifying plants.
My two best bets are a Terminalia species (maybe it’s Terminalia catappa), that’s called Almendro locally… although it’s not at all related to old world almond trees… apparently it’s called ‘sea almond’ in English… you see it along roads a lot.
Or it could be an Anacardium, the cashew genus… The wild cashew (Anacardium excelsum) is native and common in Panama, and the ‘tame’ (marañon) is grown in gardens and along roads.. more inland.
.. but as I said, I’m fairly useless with plants.
I was thinking it was a Fiddle-leaf Fig….and I only say that because I have several of them here in the house!
To be all cynical and totally blunt, I think someone planted Mr. Sloth in that tree for our tour bus to find because I am fairly certain sloths don’t eat Fiddle-leaf Figs. 😛
Hims the mascot of your adventure! I give a slow but loud s.q.u.e.e.e.e.e.e.!!!
