They say that patience is a virtue. Well, we can be sure that it’s an important thing to have when you’re crossing a busy highway.

Crossing The Street


A lot of people are afraid of crossing the street. Moreso, getting to the other side of a highway.

Wandering Animal


Unlike most of us who have to use a footbridge or an underpass to cross a busy highway, an innocent sloth decided to get to the other side of a freeway in Ecuador through a shortcut.

Not Your Typical Sloth


Sloths are typically found in the forest canopy sunbathing, sleeping, or feeding on leaves, but this one seems to be an adventurous sloth.
