Kids kill naked sloth, think it is an alien.

Good news - this post about a very strange creature killed by some kids in Cerro Azul, Panama, is apparently going to hit the front page at Fark tonight. Which is, make no mistake, cool to me because I’ve been a TF’er (TotalFarker) for years now. I’ve had a handful of posts I’ve written both for kicks and for money go green on Fark and it’s always a nice feeling. (Even though the comments can get really weird if there’s a controversial element in the subject of the post.) Farkers are often pretty fucking smart, observant and funny. So 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.A weird creature has stirred up controversy among the people of Cerro Azul. Some say it could be an alien, others simply believe that is an animal. …

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.

Below is more info about this geographic location. I’ve added links so you can learn to  identify the creatures living around you.

The palms often look like something out of the pre-historic era, sometimes shrouded in fog. The flora and fauna are also unique. The variety of wildlife is truly amazing. You may see foxes, white-faced capuchin, ant-eater, sloth, squirrels, coatimundi [hog-nosed coons, snookum bears,  Brazilian aardvarks] , agouti, peccary [javelinas ] and white-tailed deer, howler monkey, red spider monkey, jaguar, olingo, two-toed sloth, ocelot, jagarundi [jaguarundi (Puma yagouaroundi)], harpy eagle and guan. In addition to the stunning natural beauty of Altos de Cerro Azul, you have access to high-speed satellite internet, Direct TV and modern electricity and telephone services. – panama

        Like you would of ever know what a shaved sloth looks like before reading this. If you saw that I don’t think you behave much differently, maybe not kill it but report it and let someone kill it. Beside your standard moral precepts, the 10 commandments, Christianity is way too full of contradictions and edited bullshit to be any sort of guiding light more a source of conflict of interests.

    It’s a bummer, but you can’t fault the kids too much, the reacted just as any other animal. They saw something, interpreted it as a threat, and went into attack mode. And judging by the animal’s appearance, I really doubt that the kids would’ve been able to readily identify that… thing as a sloth, hell, I saw pictures of that earlier this morning and couldn’t figure out what it was, even after studying it for a good 10 minutes.

        September 18, 2009

        Personally, I don’t find it at all encouraging that the kids’ first impulse upon seeing a creature they couldn’t identify was to kill it.

        Nor that their second impulse was apparently to try to dispose of the body…

      doesnt matter what it was, if its coming at you at 1 mile per hour,why crowd round it and start battering it with sticks and rocks??? ever thought about that??? These kids could of easily run away if they were SOOO FRIGHTENED!!!! This poor sloth couldnt, he was doomed as soon as these kids saw it, he could never of got away….this was a devastating game of cat and tortoise!!! It wont happen, but i wish these kids would be punished for this!!! These kinda kids grow up to be todays sickos!!!!

    • Rhonda
      September 23, 2009

      I completely agree. This was an incredibly cruel act. If you look at the top of the picture you’ll note there is brown fur on the body. I don’t believe this poor animal was bare as claimed. Whether it was found floating in the water and the kids pulled it out and made up a story or did beat it to death (note there’s no marks on the body indicating that) is the real question I think. Its definitely some breed of sloth, from the claw and especially from the nostrils, if they did beat it they should be fined at least these animals are endangered, slow moving and pose absolutley no threat. Plus they were in a group and as said were not terrified to surround and beat it and if they were so frightened why go back, or for that matter be frightened to go back as they knew it was dead. Its unbelievable.

      • Javin
        May 20, 2010

        This is EXACTLY what I thought. These kids pulled it out of the water, or found it washed up somewhere (sloths can swim, just not remarkably well). They then decided to tell a sensational story about it to get their 15 minutes of fame. This thing looks to me like it’s been floating in the water for a week or two. (I’m a veterinarian, BTW.)

        October 1, 2012

        No you wouldn’t give it some lemonade and a biscuit but you sure as hell wouldn’t beat to death! No matter if its story or true its still horrible. If the kids were stupid enough to come up with this story that it had been beaten to death then they have a sick idea of cool. If they did beat it to death then they have a bad idea of what they should be afaid of. I personally belive that they lied about beating it to death and they should e punished some how but not to the extent of hung or killed.

      This creature appears to be a cave dwelling addition to the sloth species. As you can see in the picture, this animal has under-developed eyes just like many other cave dwellers. It’s lack of fur is also indicative of an animal which lives in a cave. How sad is it that most people consider killing an anonymous “threat” before studying it? Violence will be the short end of humanity.

      • Jay
        August 2, 2012

        I like your theory but this creature seems to have some fur which makes it more plausible that it has some type of condition OR it has been in the water decomposing to its current state. I’m certain these kids just found it and lied.. look closely at the images and you will see no hematoma present on any visible part of this creature. If kids beat it to death there would be some evidence of that unless their weapon of choice was a pillow. The skin is pale and its abdomen seems almost bloated which is a sign of microbial proliferation. This stage of decomposition only occurs with time, not immediately after death.

  6. Xeno
    September 18, 2009

    Unless furlessness gave this sloth super speed, it can’t have posed much of an apparent threat, no mater what it was in their frightened minds. If I was a kid, and this thing came ssssslllllloooooowwwwwwllllllyyyy toward me at 2 feet per minute, attacking it and killing it would not be my first choice.

    Fight or flight, right? What happened to flight?

    But obviously and sadly, Mike is right. Human nature is that we do have an attack mode. Face it, humans kill. For fun. For food. For fear. I stomped a spider by my front door last night that looked like a black widow. (I’d given it one chance actually, I used a stick and put it outside the night before, but it got back in.) I had that startle reaction, “Aaaah! Stomp! Dead.” before I could think about anything else. We have a natural fear of spiders. But sloths? Leaves and flower petals might want to fear sloths because that is what they eat.

    Some people must fear sloths. Humans have already caused the extinction of some types of sloths according to this …

    the fact that ground sloths survived on the Antilles long after they had died out on the mainland points towards human activities as the agency of extinction….

    Sloths move only when necessary and even then very slowly: they have about a quarter as much muscle tissue as other animals of similar weight. They can move at a marginally higher speed if they are in immediate danger from a predator (4.5 m or 15 feet per minute), but they burn large amounts of energy doing so.

    I first saw this photo in my local free newspaper, it was a really tiny cropped photo in black and white and poorly reproduced and you know what I thought? “Oh a hairless sloth” – pretty obvious to anyone. So, if I can tell it’s a sloth froma really bad photo and the closest I’ve ever been to one is watching a documentary, why would a bunch of kids who live in the same country and presumably learn about them the same way Australian’s learn about kangaroos ever in their wildest imaginations think that it was a monster. I’ll tell you what really happened. One of the kids saw something and said to the others “hey look! a hairless sloth” another kid would have said “lets kill it!!” and so they did. Afterwards realising that it was a pretty shitty thing to do, they made up the story about it attacking. By the way, have you ever seen a sloth attack anything?

        honestly,
        its walking pace is so slow,
        they could’ve just let it be and skampered off like good little kids,
        as opposed to beating it till its death.
        and even if it were an alien, they would’ve destroyed most evidence for research for the future.
        so in the end,
        those kids should atleast get fined for slaughtering a kind, caring and not to mention almost rare creature.

        Do you sob when people pick flowers? Flowers were alive. A life is a life, right?

        Do you sob when carnivores hunt? A life is a life, right?

        Animals don’t lie…no shit. As soon as animals develop complex emotions, real reasoning, and a spoken language maybe you can start to stick up for every chicken in my refrigerator, but until then shut the [screw] up with this stupid nonsense. Do you think the sloth was wondering if Suzie Sloth is going to call him back, or if he is going to get accepted into his university of choice? You put these ideas of human emotions into animals, and they just aren’t there. How about you go and try to live with a group of brown bears and see if they welcome you in and show you love and honesty.

        On a side note…it looks like the sloth drowned to me. It looks blue and bloated, and I see no damage from rocks and sticks. Drowning might also account for the hair falling off. The kids probably found the thing dead and made up a story.

There are actual human beings being killed everyday and you sit here wasting your time getting mad at people you dont know because you believe this stupid story. shame shame shame. You simply just cant put human reasoning into animals. all animals goals in life is to eat, sleep, and make babies. and if you wana argue with me on that thought, please dont because your not an animal so you have no idea. yes, i may have no idea either but it is scientifically proven that our brain is far more complex then some sloth. And if this sloth was supposively beatin to death then i think thats an easier way to die then those sloths thats are being dismembered by a lion. having their insides pulled out. cry all yo want. but theres nothing you can do. its dead. end of story. arguing is not going to make that sloth come back to life. its the circle of life. you were born in this world to one day die. does it really matter how you die? nope! anyways Kate and Az please, just shhhh. your making yourself look rediculous. like seriously im 16 and i feel like i can hold my knowledge far over yours. yeah you can put big words into your sentences but im so smart ion need to use big words to get my point across. dueces

It obviously is a mutation of something and obviously a genetic defect has made it the way it is. One would guess that the hairlessness is the reason why it lived in the cave. I have to agree that the kids in question should not have killed it……. and why were the kids in question in a place not under appropriate adult supervision?

    Some of you crack me up… After looking at it next to a normal sloth it is easy to see that it was most likely a sloth that had some sort of genetic defect. First off who the hell is going to shave a sloth and second you can look at and see it wasn’t shaved.

    As for the kids, so many of you are on here talking about how mean and wrong the kids where for killing it, however you seem to forget what it is like to see anything coming at you that you don’t recognized no matter the speed. The kids were frightened simple as that. I highly doubt they sat there and discussed what to do with this weird looking thing coming at them.

    The same people on here talking about the kids are the same ones that think it is okay to kill other animals for sport or food. I am an animal lover and don’t think that these kids did anything wrong. Hell if it were me I don’t know what I would done, just like most of you other lovely people.

    Don’t be naive. It’s really doubtful that that sloth was running towards them at all, if anything animals have the purgative to RUN from us.

    The truth of the matter is that those teens probably killed that sloth accidentally.

    I’m in highschool, and the just the other day i saw an event just like this. There were a bunch of baby ducklings stuck in the middle of the school field with their mother and resting (presumably from a long previous walk). So me and my friend were watching and doing the whole girly “wow! they are SO cute” thing. Twenty minutes later as we’re leaving some boys start chucking stones at these defenceless ducklings. Luckily we told them off before serious damage :)

    In both cases i don’t think they were actively TRYING to kill the animals but trying to scare them. Just trying to be, in some twisted way, manly.

    Since there is no clear idea how large it is (no scale bar, of course!), it could also be an embryonic sloth that has been in a jar for years and laid out over a bunch of rocks. The whole story with the teenagers would then of course be a lie.

    If it is a real creature, then it would be interesting to see if there is a link with the extinct marine sloths of the genus Thalassocnus.

    az , everyone knows what a tortoise is some people dont even know what a sloth is never mind a bald one. im 13 and if i saw some bald thing with claws i would have the same approach. i know you will be older than me but age isnt knowlege. i know if one of them was in your face and you didnt know what it was you would attack it.

    All you people saying that “these kids should be hung” are complete idiots.
    I’m sorry, but we are the dominant race on this planet, the reason you all can calmly sit and post replies on the internet in the safety of your own home, is because we humans asserted that dominance long ago by proving ourselves superior to every other animal on the planet in terms of survival. These children were merely doing what humans have been doing for thousands of years, destroying the unknown. IF the animal had been found by scientists, then fine…let it be analyzed. But it was found by kids. They overreacted, simple. You who think they must be punished for something that is completely human in nature makes you as brutally uncivilized as many of the worlds most hated figures in history. Our children…human children take priority over lower beings

    so lets say that thing was an alien as proven in the last post, its naked you dont know what it is and its moving towards you…ill give you two scenarios.1. let it come close to you and it might take your clothes off.2.beat it with sticks and stones before it gets you.You people who want to punish these kids are at least one of three things. vegetarian, wildlife person, animal welfare person or maybe just a complete and utter retard?

    I Read nearly all the cruel nasty comments people wrote… Firstly, Kids Hung? HUNG? Are you F.ucking serious? Yes they were stupid and reckless but I say you could atleast blame the parents for not teaching them of self control and about Animals, Blame the teachers if you want but that’s wrong to say, only a Sick bastard would say that… Also think about the Sloth, would it want you argueing over its death? Highly likely NOT! There are so many things being harmed out there so I guess you should just stop wasting your time, Yes I feel sorry for the sloth but I feel sorry for the kids being criticised TOO! Think before you say! ;) also Stop arguing, it won’t make people change there opinions and it won’t change mine so its best to just say: RIP SLOTH AND LET’S LEAVE IT AT THAT! Annnndddd swearing won’t get you anywhere and the sloths not Fat nor ugly, its Just different. Thankyou, if you want to reply to this comment reply to me On DEVIANART search up keyralove, since that’s mwa name on here ;) thanks! Xxx

    hahahaha reading these comments got me laughing so rediculously hard right now. Kate and Az are probably som good little church going kids who wana say they are Christians but then curse like its nothing. Hypocrits is what you are. Yes the naked sloth died. There are actual human beings being killed everyday and you sit here wasting your time getting mad at people you dont know because you believe this stupid story. shame shame shame. You simply just cant put human reasoning into animals. all animals goals in life is to eat, sleep, and make babies. and if you wana argue with me on that thought, please dont because your not an animal so you have no idea. yes, i may have no idea either but it is scientifically proven that our brain is far more complex then some sloth. And if this sloth was supposively beatin to death then i think thats an easier way to die then those sloths thats are being dismembered by a lion. having their insides pulled out. cry all yo want. but theres nothing you can do. its dead. end of story. arguing is not going to make that sloth come back to life. its the circle of life. you were born in this world to one day die. does it really matter how you die? nope! anyways Kate and Az please, just shhhh. your making yourself look rediculous. like seriously im 16 and i feel like i can hold my knowledge far over yours. yeah you can put big words into your sentences but im so smart ion need to use big words to get my point across. dueces.
