Grateful Sloth Waves and Smiles Back At Man Who Saved Him From Traffic During Rush Hour

Because what says, “Thank you!” better than a smiling sloth?

Why did the sloth cross the road?

Apparently, he forgot the answer as well.

When a Brazilian man came across the slow moving creature in the middle of a busy street in Rio de Janeiro, he did what any animal lover would wish they would do, too.

What would you do?

Jose Aldenizio stopped traffic on a busy road in Rio de Janeiro to save a sloth in the middle of the road.

Jose Aldenizio got out of his car, stopped traffic, picked up the sloth, carried him to a nearby tree and held him long enough for him to latch on.

As he walked across the street, Aldenizio waved back at his new friend.

Incredibly, the sloth smiled and waved back!

Proud daughter

The man’s daughter, Gabrielle Araujo, posted the video.

She is a veterinary student and told the news service Globo how proud she is of her dad.

“I, as a student of veterinary medicine, have a pride in my father and his care for animals, and for being able to show people that sentient animals which convey feelings and emotions deserve all our respect and right to life with dignity.”
