    A stranded sloth from Ecuador is so cute it stopped traffic, Today.com reports, though the fact that he was stuck in the middle of a highway and clinging to a highway rail support pole also may have had something to do with it.

    The Transport Commission of Ecuador posted pictures on Facebook of workers rescuing the scared little guy, who wasn't moving so fast mainly because he's a sloth. They have been shared about 15,000 times since they were posted Friday.

    The commission wrote that the animal, which was on the road in the town of Los Rios, was taken to a veterinarian, who determined it was OK to return to its habitat.
