Sloth gets stuck on roadside guardrail

- A sloth that got stranded on the side of a road in Ecuador was trending on social media over the weekend.

 

A Facebook post by the Transport Commission of Ecuador featured photos of the sloth clinging to the post of a guard rail. It said the "beautiful" sloth had been trying to cross the Quevedo ring road -- a dangerous place for such a creature.
