3. Sloths only come down from the tree canopy once per week to defecate... Yes, they only relieve

themselves 1x per week, though females in heat will usually do so daily.

IT is this once/week "destination" that is often deadly to sloths. My guess is the poor thing was trying to "do its thing"...

WAPO did a nice piece on sloths a few years ago:

10. It needs to recover from the dizzying speed with which

the rescuer swooped down and flew him through the sky!

11. And the sloth turned, smiled and waved thanks to its human friend......

in a beautiful slothy sort of way!

What a wonderful gesture of kindness for a poor creature trapped by a highway.......

Good for the guys that stopped traffic, too......
