Sid, our newest three-toed sloth named after the one from "Ice Age", was brought to us at the Rescue Center in the second week in January 2021. He had fallen from a tree and was found by a local young man named Nico.
Nico had been vacationing in Limon, Costa Rica, and decided to take a nature walk. He stopped when he saw the baby sloth on the ground and no mother in the area. He googled and found the number for Rescue Center and spoke to Vanessa direct.
He was coming back to San Jose that same day and agreed to bring the baby to the Rescue Center. The veterinarians realized immediately the baby boy sloth was dehydrated and severely constipated which probably resulted in his inability to get back into the tree.
He's safe now and being cared for in the Senis Baby Animal Hospital at Rescue Center Costa Rica. He is doing very well in quarantine and will soon be transferred to the sloth garden and eventually released. Thanks Nico for your help!
