The brightly coloured patch (speculum) on his back clearly indicates he is a male 3 fingered sloth! The hair within the speculum is short and downy, covered in an oily secretion, and has a musty scent.Β ❤
.
It is hypothesized these speculums are linked to sexual selection, fitter males develop larger more vivid speculums which give off a stonger scent! 😮 The individual patterns displayed are also thought to be unique to each 3 fingered male sloth! Except the manned sloth who does not display these unique patterns. Source: @slothconservation

I believe that in the Amazon jungle there’s scientists taking mould off the fur of sloths and it may very well be our next antibiotic, of the future.
