We have been so very busy here at The Toucan Rescue Ranch with our animals, guests, tours and volunteers! That I was in real need of a bit of a break, so I escaped to the farm for the day.
I was excited to see Karla and Lin our farm dogs, and take a nice walk in the forest with them. There were lots of different birds, parrots, oropendulas, 4 different woodpeckers and it was not that hot, so I was enjoying myself. I crossed both streams, and up to the corner of the property line when I came across this young Three Toed Sloth who needed a bit of help! She had climbed up the post of the wire fence and was just realizing she was in trouble when I arrived. I really did not want to touch her and upset her, so I "coached" her from the other side of the fence, I was laying in the mud, getting eaten by mosquitos and talking to her so that she would know that I was there and move away.....ever so slowly.
