Looks to me like it was stuck in the sloths nails and just raised its’ paw to the handler. That’s just my casual observation. I could be wrong.

They are incredibly docile and gentle creatures. Amazing they are not extinct.

Given the rate at which sloths move, that animal will be eating her for the next 50 years/s.

The neighbors’ cat who visits me a few times a week only brings the odd dead mouse. We’re going to have to have a serious talk.
