When I saw the title I pondered as to whether you'd seen me somewhere !!
Seriously though - I've only seen them on TV wildlife programs, we don't have 'em in Oz [unless you count the Koala as it doesn't do much while in the trees]

Photo wise - it is always hard when shooting from below as the face is hidden from view. Maybe next time :)

I did get his rear end in focus, I think. I've got a couple of good shots but I don't put my best stuff on web sites, I hold them back in case they're needed for competitions.

It’s a hard shot, at least you can tell it’s a sloth.
I actually saw one crossing a road. Their arms can't lift them when on the ground so they pull themselves along. All the traffic stopped and waited for it to cross the road, it took a while. I got a few shots but with the dent they have in their back it just looks like road-kill.
