Even on the heights and in the man’s arms, the sloth kept fighting to escape. About this moment, Victor Hugo recalled: “I told him to come, not to be afraid of me, that I wanted to save his life. I asked him to listen to me, that this was to return him to his habitat. He was very nice because when I was finally able to hold him in our arms we lowered him with great affection and care”.
