I wasn't sure what wildlife thread category this silly guy would fit in, so I had to give him his own thread. This peaceful, slow, strange beast can be found in central and south America - this one was photographed in Costa Rica, and let me walk right up to him with my NEX mirrorless - of course, if he did feel threatened, you'd barely notice - it took the animal a minute to climb 2 feet up the branch!:

Seeing another one high up in the treetops. working its way from one tree to another through the canopy, I couldn't help think how much they look like a child in a zippered suit:

Nice shots! What lens did you use for the first one? I can see you got a pretty tight shot

Thanks...I had my 55-210mm lens on my NEX, along with a 1.7x teleextender.

The first picture looks like he combed his hair for the photo shoot. Maybe he was waiting for you. :) Nice shot!

Thank you. They are fascinating creatures...they often have that 'combed' look - I can see where George Lucas might have gotten some of his Chewbacca inspiration from!
