Brown-throated three toed sloth with her. Did you know that sloths live high it the tree tops and only come down from the trees once every 8 days to defecate in the soil. You can not see it in this picture but the sloths are crawling with bugs and the sloth acts as their host. When the sloth goes down to defecate the bugs crawl down and lay their eggs in the sloths waste then jump back on the sloth for the next 8 days.
