Sloth crossing the road

I was driving on the coast of Sao Paulo state when I saw this sloth trying to cross very slowly the busy road. No doubt, I had to stop my car and ran to wave at the other cars to slow down. Some of them also stopped and we formed a protective barrier so that this cute animal could reach safely the other side. I was impressed by the collaboration of the other drivers; nearly everybody seemed concerned. Yet on the safe side, the sloth turned back at us as to thank us… this was a great moment!

      Espantoso este set, a preguiça é linda e com certeza nada fácil de encontrar na vida selvagem. Ainda bem que a ajudou a atravessar a rua, seria morte certa sem a sua ajuda.

      That was wonderful of you, to stop other vehicles and allow the sloth to cross the road safely. Well done.
