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.
