It takes time to capture the perfect nature shot, especially when sloths are involved.
Marcelo Sueth, an adventure tour guide, captured a charming selfie with the tree-dwelling mammal. Sueth said he was on a trail near Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, last month when he stumbled upon the animal. He snapped some photos of it from afar before deciding the sloth seemed comfortable with him. That's when he snuggled up to it and, with the help of a selfie stick, captured an epic shot of himself and the sloth hanging around.
"It was an amazing moment of interaction and exchange of good energy," he told ABC.
He said he wants to share it with the world in hopes of spreading a love of nature.
