… I had to make note of it when one guy in the Fark comments brought the sorta bad news here – the Cerro Azul cryptid really looks like a shaved sloth. See above – I rotated the Cerro Azul mystery creature just so you could more easily compare body shape.
I hate being such a skeptic, but at the moment I’m thinking, man, that poor sloth. He just wanted to go full-body Brazilian, just once, and a bunch of fucking teenagers go all caveman on his ass.
The claw is the giveaway.
What did I say yesterday? What did I say? Don’t … kill … rare …. animals!
Kids, if this was a real alien it would have sucked your violent little brains out through your feet before you could swing a stick or throw a rock. In fact, about fifty nasty angry aliens are probably going to do just that to each of you tonight. You can’t hide from them. The aliens are coming for you. They are coming to Panama.
Sad. This naked sloth might have had a great life ahead of it once it got over whatever caused its fur to fall out.
