Maybe you’ve heard about why the chicken crossed the road, but what about the sloth?

This intrepid tree-climber was slowly—very slowly—making its way across a busy Brazilian road during rush hour in Angra dos Reis, Rio de Janeiro when a good Samaritan stepped in to help.

A self-professed animal lover, 50-year-old José Aldenizio knew that he had to save the critter from oncoming traffic – so he approached the sloth, picked it up under the arms, carried it to the other side of the street.

Rather than leaving the animal in the grass, Aldenizio held the sloth up to a nearby tree trunk.

After the sloth had safely taken hold of the tree limb, Aldenizio waved goodbye to his new friend – and to his surprise, the sloth returned the friendly gesture.
