A sloth that got stranded on the side of a road in Ecuador was trending on social media over the weekend.

A Facebook post by the Transport Commission of Ecuador featured photos of the sloth clinging to the post of a guard rail. It said the "beautiful" sloth had been trying to cross the Quevedo ring road -- a dangerous place for such a creature.

A comment from the Transport Commission confirmed the sloth was checked by a vet and returned to its natural habitat.
