I photographed this wonderfully active three-toed sloth (Bradypus spp.) last May at the Tranquilo Bay Eco Lodge in Bocas del Toro, Panama. Panama is host to a myriad of rainforest species, including the two and three-toed sloths. Unlike Costa Rican sloths, which have large predators and stay hidden most of the day, their Panamanian cousins are often active and in the open during broad daylight.
