At times, the internet has a lot of things in store that we can never imagine in our wildest of dreams. One such instance took place in Brazil that not only tickled the funny bone but warmed everyone's hearts as well. 

Coming from a city named Recife in the South American country, a sloth was spotted inside the local bus. The commuters were in for a treat when they spotted the rather slow-paced animal clinging onto the top handrails for support.

At times, the internet has a lot of things in store that we can never imagine in our wildest of dreams. One such instance took place in Brazil that not only tickled the funny bone but warmed everyone's hearts as well.

Coming from a city named Recife in the South American country, a sloth was spotted inside the local bus. The commuters were in for a treat when they spotted the rather slow-paced animal clinging onto the top handrails for support. 

The photos were posted on Twitter by a biodiversity-centric page on Twitter where it gave the details about the entire ride. 

One might wonder how did the sloth get into the bus. Well, there is a backstory and it is a heartwarming one. According to the Daily Mail,  a bus river named Ronaldo Santana and his conductor, Marcio Albuquerque had found the animal trying to cross the road. Due to the animal's natural pace, it was certain that it will be harmed by the cars coming in from the other side. 

"I pulled the bus over at the stop and I saw something moving. We then realized it was a sloth walking towards the cars," Santana was quoted saying by the news agency. It was the first time they had seen it on the roads and they allowed it to come on board. 

They decided to take the sloth to the police station in order for it to be taken back to the wild. Albuquerque added, "I'm thrilled. I thank God for giving me the opportunity to save the animal." Further, he talked about how people neglect the environment these days that results in deforestation and natural habitats getting ruined for the animals to live in.
