Well, it finally happened: the Transit Commission of Ecuador has figured out how to become social media superstars. They've struck digital oil in the form of this sloth, the latest in a series of sloth stars to slither into the tubes of the Internet.

It's okay. They had a veterinarian check out the sloth before releasing it to the wild.
