Swipe. My favorite Rainforest animal is of course the very cute, sleepy sloth. Quite vulnerable to predators because they are so slow moving (2 meters/min), they spend almost their entire lives in trees. Also, because they move so slowly and sleep so much, algae actually grows on their fur giving it a green hue. This in turn, aids in camouflage and the sloths can easily be mistaken for moss.
They have an extremely slow metabolic rate and come down out of the tree just once a week for a bathroom break! Very unusual since they are also vegetarians! 🤔 #sloth#centralamerica#naturephotography#costarica#manuelantonionationalpark#rainforest#naturephotography
Swipe left. See an Istanbul cargo ship passing through the Panama Canal. Notice how the water level changes to rise and lower the ship as it passes through. The last photo shows two different ships entering & leaving. Completed in 1914 this amazing canal runs south & north, connecting the Atlantic & Pacific oceans via three different locks. #panamacanal#worldtrade#travelislearning
