Thanks to a good Samaritan and the efforts of the Jaguar Rescue Center, a baby sloth has been reunited with its mother.
On May 8, the Samaritan found the baby and dropped it off at the sanctuary. Eager to find the mom, the rescue played a recording of the baby’s calls over a loudspeaker in a clever attempt to lure its mother back to it.
Thankfully, they were successful, and the mother responded to her baby’s cries for help. When the mother descended from a tree to get closer to the sounds, rescuers were able to pinpoint her location and reunite the pair.
