In the streets of Ecuador, falling on a sloth is common. They live freely in their natural habitat, in the forest, as well as in many nature reserves, but sometimes they can still go out to people, usually by pure chance.
That’s exactly what happened to this little one. For what purpose he went out on the road and decided to cross the pavement loaded with cars, no one knows. Sloths are often very shy and move rather slowly.
It is for this reason that he was able to safely cross only part of the road while traffic resumed and cars followed one another endlessly. Then the animal clung to the stop and looked around with fear.
The drivers noticed the forest guest and turned to the police, telling the story of a child stuck in the middle of the highway and thus putting his existence at risk. The police quickly answered the call and, once there, were surprised that it was not a child, but a sloth on the road.
But the uncritical situation even pleased and amused them. Traffic police blocked the road and helped the little one return to his home in the forest. As a result of the rescue operation, they managed to make some of the cutest photos that were posted on social media and instantly spread on the global web.
