Chuwie, a Brown-throated sloth, rescued by Juan Carlos Rodriguez and his wife Haydee on a road after it fell from a power line, clings on a bamboo structure, at the couple's shelter for sloths, in San Antonio, Venezuela July 30, 2021. They took the Brown-throated sloth - which are common in parts of South and Central America - to the vet and were able to save him, though the animal lost two hind limbs and the claws of its left arm.
