On the streets of Ecuador, encountering a sloth is a common thing. They live freely in their natural habitat, in the forest, as well as in many reserves, but sometimes they can still go out to people, usually by pure chance.
This is exactly what happened to this baby. For what purpose he went out on the road and decide to cross the carriageway loaded with cars, no one knows. Sloths are often very shy and move rather slowly.
It was for this reason that he managed to safely cross only part of the road, while traffic resumed and cars drove in endless succession. Then the animal pressed against the bump stop and looked around with fear.
The drivers noticed the forest guest and turned to the police, telling the story of a kid stuck in the middle of the highway and thus endangering his existence. The police promptly responded to the call and, being on the spot, were surprised that there was not a child on the road, but a sloth.
But the uncritical situation even made them happy and amused. The traffic police blocked the road and helped the cub to return to his home in the forest.
As a result of the rescue operation, it was possible to make a couple of cute shots that were posted on social networks and instantly spread throughout the global web.
