Slow life of sloths

Sloths are a kind of unique creatures in the world that are famous for being cute and slow-moving. They are not in a hurry like other animals in the wild. Moreover, they are so relaxed that they only come down from their tree houses once a week to take care of bathroom needs. Can you imagine being so content in your cozy nest that you only step out for the essentials?

Of all things it could do, this sloth stuck in the middle of a road in Quevedo, in the middle of Ecuador. Where was this little sloth going? Did it want to cross the road? A bathroom trip? Or was it just exploring? Either way, it looked pretty confusing on the road.
