This is the moment an unexpected visitor was spotted on the side of the highway clinging to the metal post
It was a sloth! The long-limbed adventurer was spotted in Quevedo, Ecuador before being scooped up by local police.
In one of the most adorable rescue missions ever, the sloth was taken to the vet after being picked up by Ecuadorian traffic officers.
After appearing to be in good health, the officers took him back to the forest near where he was found.
Luckily for us, the officers took pictures and uploaded them on Facebook for us to enjoy.
Let’s hope this sloth doesn’t try to cross the road again!
