Eva is a two-toed sloth -- Bradicus variegatus, approximately six months old. A local resident turned her in, after slaughtering her mother for food. His family had wanted to keep her as a pet, and were trying to feed her bread and milk. Because of the lack of appropriate care, she became ill.
When she arrived, she had a swollen belly (timpanism) and looked quite bad. Our caretakers placed her on rehydration liquids, and a special milk mixture, and she has progressed quite well. She's now eating three times a day, and sleeps in a special enclosure made for her. During the day, she is taken outside her enclosure, so she can spend time on the trees and eat leaves.EVA 1: Eva en un árbol de guaba, comiendo sus hojas favoritas EVA 2: Eva y nuestra voluntaria Maja Krivec de Eslovenia EVA 3: Eva en uno de sus momentos favoritos del dia EVA 4: Eva en una incubadora que fabricamos especialmente para ella cuando llegó a RAREC EVA 5: Eva encuentra una posición comoda en los arboles y duerme la mayor parte del dia EVA 6: Eva y nuestra voluntaria Shaked Rashkovits de Israel
