Why did the sloth cross the road? To get halfway across and then hug the central reservation, apparently. This little critter, who is as yet unnamed, was spotted mid-Ecuadorian-adventure – as he attempted to cross a busy road in Quevedo. Clinging onto the central reservation, he didn’t seem to be enjoying himself.
However, the police soon came to his rescue and discovered that despite his dangerous predicament, he still had a smile on his face. The sloth did eventually manage to get to the other side and has since gained internet notoriety for being so lazy that he couldn’t even cross a road in one go.
