The Cerro Azul animal is a blend of sloth traits (claws, pelvic bone) and non-typical traits, so it’s most probably not a sloth but a sloth
crossbreed. There are substantial differences from a regular sloth:
- Certainly the “pencil” thin arms of the Cerro Azul being ("2." of www.abovetopsecret.com...
- Rather certainly its nose. Sloths (at least seem to) have dark noses, somehow similar to dogs'. No way such a nose could change its dark color just
by dwelling in water for a relatively short time (the original close ups of the Cerro Azul being's head depict no advanced decomposition). Regular
- Rather certainly its (genuinely?) naked skin (unless someone finds a really
convincing explanation for any allegedly lost fur). Drowned
bodies usually DON'T lose their hair/fur ("4." of www.abovetopsecret.com...
). Photo of a bloated drowned dog,
still has its fur:
- Possibly the chest (suspiciously narrow especially in comparison with regular three toed sloths). This
shows the find has three toes/claws. Three toed sloths do not
have the very
narrow chest of the two toed sloths. Something doesn't add up.
- Possibly the size. The Cerro Azul animal seems pretty big for a three toed sloth (en.wikipedia.org...
sloths are about the size of a small dog or large cats, with the head and body having a combined length of around 45 centimeters, and the animal
having a weight of 3.5-4.5 kg (or between 7 and 10 lbs). Unlike the two-toed sloths, they also have a short (6-7 cm) tail, and they have three clawed
toes on all front feet of their limbs."
) Why no data about the size, or footage allowing a comparison?
- Finally the said insufficient footage. Why not a single still/video close up of the skull and the chest of the latter carcass - although a whole
crew was present?? They did provide numerous skull close ups in this case (hoax): “Alien
caught in rat trap? "
no more close ups of the Cerro Azul animal especially in view of the public attention it received?
