[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the skull of the two-toed sloth that I photographed earlier in my TrekNature gallery.

We had received word that the sloth had died several days its release. Someone had seen vultures eating an animal and when they checked it out, it was our sloth.

When we released the anteater we came across the skull of the sloth at the location where the vultures had devoured it.

Hi Cesar,

It was sad to read that the beautiful creature had died eventually.I wish one had taken care of few injuries as evident on its face; probably there were others too. Its better to keep them in the hospital for observation before release to the wilderness.

Yes you are right; that's the life cycle/circle's end point for all of us.

Looking forward to see more & more pictures from you.

A very sad ending for this poor creature.
It must have been pretty soul destroying for the rescuers that you obviously have contact with.
It is always difficult and sometimes impossible, for a wild creature to survive in a new and unfamiliar habitat.
A very sad and poignant photo indeed.
