This is newsworthy here at Towleroad? Less of this, puhleez. (Cute guy, though.)

I like all the old people at the end who swarm over it with cameras

Love it. Adorable dude with cute critter…or cute dude with adorable critter. Either way works for me.

It’s nice to think that we’re altruistic enough to want to help out another species just because we see they need help. This reaffirms my faith in humanity for the day. Or at least the afternoon.

Aw don’t be mean, a few cute feel good articles help drown out all the nasty GOP news.
May 16, 2011 at 8:39 pm
That was a warm fuzzy moment and the rescuer had a really nice ass!

Thank you for the informative video on sloth-lifting. I have heard that they can be extremely dangerous with their long claws. The next time I have to move a strange sloth, I feel more secure knowing how to pick it up and transport it safely. This is why I read the internets.

Sloths are damn ugly and scary looking, but you gotta feel for this poor little guy. Here’s an “awwwwww” frowny face….;(

That was terrifying.

I understand that in C.R. there are overhead lines just designed for the sloth to use. Some times the poor creatures use the electric lines and some get shocked. It’s nice the police or who ever that handsome guy was showed up and knew what to do.

I used to do this for turtles trying to cross the road in NC.
The hero was HAWT!

Loved the video — thanks Andy. I have had the lucky experience to spot a few sloths along the Amazon — they are very difficult to find since they are sloths and only move a few inches per hour. What a treat to see one actually crawling along.
I agree with other comments — I love your little breaks from the tedious tension fighting the Religious Reich!

Of course it’s not news. It’s a sloth interest story.

Personally, I love these cute animal videos you put up here.

Honestly how can anyone think that thing is cute? It’s creepy. It looks like some kind of zombie alien creature with vicious talons that it will rip you apart with in slow motion.
May 16, 2011 at 9:36 pm
Andy, your blog is perfect…haters and bitter queens just gonna hate.
Besides, there is always room in the day for cute men and cuter animals.

Sloths ugly?! WTF?
Secondly I’m all for these kinds of stories/videos. There are only so many stories, of the GOP trying to screw us over, that you can read in a row without wanting to go all “Kobayashi Maru!”

Man, I love it when I feel good!
May 16, 2011 at 10:39 pm
Loved it! All the stories can’t be about how the world is going to hell.
May 16, 2011 at 10:40 pm
That guy could pick me up anytime he wants. Woof!
May 16, 2011 at 10:49 pm
That just made my day!
May 16, 2011 at 11:00 pm
Sloth news day?
May 16, 2011 at 11:16 pm
Costa Rica is a beautiful country and sloths are cool. I love the background sound of nature, in this case a subtropic rainforest.
May 17, 2011 at 12:04 am
Too bad he’s being pestered by old white people with cameras.
May 17, 2011 at 7:19 am
For a sloth, that guy was moving! A regular Jesse Owens of the sloth world B-)

Damn, that guy had nice legs!!!
May 17, 2011 at 9:26 am
I have done this with a Gila monster, rattlesnakes, and a Desert Tortoise here in Arizona. If you don’t, nasty people will purposely run them over.
May 17, 2011 at 11:45 am
Aww. Hottie has a heart of gold. I was really hoping they weren’t going to let him crawl out into the road (while they all took pictures).
May 17, 2011 at 12:00 pm
love manual antonio…sloths are so cool
May 17, 2011 at 3:33 pm
Great legs on the hero!
May 17, 2011 at 5:42 pm
Yep, never would have seen that without Towleroad. Keep ’em coming!

Yay! A post about my homecountry! Did you the hot guys legs? He’s def a soccer player .. or ranger or something .. someone told him to use a belt to pick it up and the hot guy said “Dont worry, I know how to handle it” .. and he knew.
Awww … nice change from the rest of the stuff you see in Manuel Antonio (I love it but with all the tourists Im starting to dislike the area .. absolutely beautiful tho)
