An anteater rests in a bathroom sink while receiving treatment at veterinarian of the state environmental police Marcelo Andreani's house, near Porto Velho, Rondonia State, Brazil, August 19, 2020. The anteater arrived with a broken left paw after a clash with a fierce porcupine. The patient had been found hiding in a garage and, again, the vets think it might have been fleeing fires as anteaters rarely turn up in the city. The fracture required surgery. Under anaesthetic, a giant tongue rolled out of the anteater's mouth, earning it the affectionate nickname Linguaruda, or Long-tongue. After surgery, one of the vets took Linguaruda home to keep a closer eye on her recovery. At one point, she climbed into the bathroom sink to rest. In five days, Linguaruda was strong enough to return to the wild - the best outcome her rescuers could wish for. REUTERS/Ueslei Marcelino SEARCH "BRAZIL ANIMALS" FOR THIS STORY.

Two of the 35 three-toed sloths (Bradypus tridactylus) rescued by Green Heritage Fund Suriname (GHFS) in recent days, crawl away after being released into the jungle in District Saramacca, November 9, 2012. Suriname's Game Law prohibits the hunting of sloths as well as the keeping of them as pets, and in one week GHFS rescued some 105 animals including sloths, ant-eaters and porcupines.
