Sloth researcher Rebecca “Becky” Cliffe, a PhD candidate hailing from the UK but doing field work in Costa Rica, was out following up on one of her tagged research sloths, when a female named Madonna, who had been raised in the Sloth Sanctuary of Costa Rica and released into the wild, climbed down lower in a tree and gave birth to a baby right in front of her eyes. What a lucky incident. And, as we know in science, we sometimes need a bit of luck on our side for our work!
