TRR ROBIN - unable to climb
Male | Small | Baby
San Josecito, Heredia



Many of our followers might already know Robin, the Brown-throated three-fingered sloth.

Today, we are sharing his story. The wildlife police brought this lovely guy in December 2022 as a tiny orphan, still with his umbilical cord around his arm. During his first weeks, he received nebulization treatment after showing up signs of pneumonia. Thankfully, his lungs got better with time.

He has been under our care for a few months now.  As he grew up, our Vet team noticed Robin had some anomalies on his fingers and feet. After doing x-rays, they confirmed he has several congenital malformations that affect his mobility. Due to this, it is difficult for him to open and close his claws properly. Sadly, this makes Robin unable to climb as a normal sloth would.

Because of Robin’s condition, our Vet team has determined that the best for him is to stay in our sanctuary as a permanent resident. Here, we will give him everything he needs to have a happy and healthy life.

You can help us care for Robin as he grows up. By donating, you will be helping us to cover the costs of his treatment, food, and general care.

(1) Medical/Medicines: X-ray, bloodwork, nebulization.

(2) General Support: bucket for handling; wild leave transport costs; heading pats, goat’s milk, blankets.

NEW ARRIVALS:

Pele, a three-fingered sloth: arrived as an orphan baby. She likes different kinds of leaves. Ficus leaves are her favorites!

Sloth Pre-School Updates:

Geo, the two-fingered sloth: Is climbing more and being more active after he finishes his treatment. We are happy to see him feeling better.
Coco, the two-fingered sloth: She is doing great. She can’t be far from Geo, as usual.
Landon, the two-fingered sloth: He’s doing great. He will spend more time practicing his climbing skills in our rehabilitation areas.
Robin, the three-fingered sloth: Started physical therapy. We’re giving him daily massages and making sure he practices climbing constantly. We hope this will improve his mobility.
Pax, the two-fingered sloth: He is growing and gaining weight.
Liana, the two-fingered sloth: She is doing great, growing and gaining weight as well. She and Pax like to play and explore!
Roo: He is almost ready to get out of the incubator; we'll keep him a little more to ensure he’s stable.

In Loving Memory:
We are sad to share that these babies did not make it.
Tigger: has passed away due to necrotic intestines from the electrocution.
Kanga: has passed away due to a cardiorespiratory failure.

Feeding time - Mine, No Mine!  :-*


Good morning Robin  :-*

REWILDING ANNOUNCEMENT:
Zuko, a three-fingered sloth, arrived due to electrocution and will be released on March 14. He is from the north of Costa Rica! He will be driven to a wildlife ranger's office to be reintroduced into the wild in a familiar habitat.

NEW ARRIVALS:
Ziggy, a three-fingered sloth
, was found alone in an area without trees or food and probably got lost. He was dehydrated and hungry, but he is eating well.

Sloth Pre-School Updates:
Geo, 2F Sloth
: doing good, eating well, and gaining weight

Coco, 2F Sloth, and her friend Geo, the two-fingered sloth, are doing great.

Landon, 2F Sloth: Landon has been struggling lately but is improving with treatment. At the moment, he is under vet supervision. As you’ve noticed, he has been having bubbles and foam coming out of his mouth due to minor ulcers. Our vet team is investigating what could be causing this. Not to worry, he is still eating, and his response to treatment is favorable.

Pax & Liana, 2F Sloths: are doing well and receiving treatment. They both are under vet supervision due to the same symptoms we are experiencing with Landon. They both are responding well to treatment.

Roo, 2F Sloth: Too is doing well! He is exploring and eating well. We are happy with his progress.

Robin, 3F Sloth: he is doing fine and receiving physical therapy for a better quality of life.

In Loving Memory - We are sad these babies did not make it due to different issues.  :'(
Pele, a three-fingered sloth: has passed away from stomach torsion.
Shanit, a three-fingered sloth: has passed away due to pneumonia.

A friendly reminder: We are a critical care facility - Even though you do not see this on camera, the animals are under 24/7 vet care.

PLEASE READ THIS MESSAGE FROM OUR ANIMAL CARE STAFF:
Toucan Rescue Ranch has always been incredibly thoughtful and meticulous about the animals we announce to the world. The animals you see at our center are all rescues - usually from severe circumstances such as traffic accidents, electrocution from power lines, the illegal pet trade (suffering from malnutrition, abuse, and so forth), and other problems such as deforestation. With all this in mind, everyone must understand that each animal in our care is recovering from said incidents.

When you are watching Sloth Preschool, you are watching animals who are in a nursery hospital. All sloths are undergoing treatment and are under 24/7 care. Many orphans we care for may have lung issues and underdeveloped organs; the list is exhaustive. All cases require a veterinarian and a detailed treatment plan based on their condition.

That said, we have always had a rule only to announce animals once we know they are stable. However, the difference between Explore.org and Sloth TV is that you get an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at animals, sometimes in intensive care. So, sadly, due to this, we may experience an animal's death - even doing everything in our absolute power to save them. Sometimes nature has another plan in store.
