The 3-Toed Sloth “Frai Choco”

Frai Choco is a two-toed sloth who was found in Fraijanes, Alajuela. Unfortunately, Frai Choco is an orphan, and he came to Rescate Wildlife Rescue Center at just three months old. Frai Choco is named in part due to the neighborhood where he was found, and the “choco” part of his name comes from his chocolate, dark-brown fur. He lost his mom due to electrocution on power lines, which is a big problem in Costa Rica. Luckily under excellent care Friai Choco was able to grow up big and strong and was released back in the wild!
