Another great photo of a pale-throated two-toed sloth (Bradypus tridactylus) rehabilitated by the Green Heritage Fund Suriname, photographer Stellar Tsang writes that this swim was unexpected. “Instead of climbing up a tree like [we] expected, she decided to go for a swim! The fact that sloths are very good swimmers is not very well known. Nature is full of surprises!”
