20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Cozy Sloth in his Natural Tree House

This Sloth is quite symbolic to me as it is the first Sloth I managed to spot in the wild on my own. Don't be fooled, they might be the national animal of Costa Rica, but they still are masters of camouflage. It's a bit of a game of "Who spots a sloth first" when going on a hike.
