Three-toed Sloth, Puerto Limon, CR-MG_5706

The three-toed sloths are tree-living mammals from South and Central America.  Three-toed sloths are agile swimmers. They are still slow in trees and when spotted make easy characters to photograph.  They might stay in one position for an extended period.  One can say the same for Owls.


Male Deer, Rocky Mountains National Park, Colorado 93E2324

There are several denominations to categorize deers, and depending on their species, a male deer can be a stag, bull or buck.  Male deers grow and shed new antlers each year.

Red Panda, Chengdu MG_3463

Red pandas (or lesser pandas) are an anomaly among animals: they have long, fluffy striped tails like a raccoon, and faces and diets that resemble a giant panda’s, but they clean themselves like a cat. However, they are not raccoons, bears, or cats — they are the only living species in a genus of their own.
