Santa sloth

Syd, an 8-month-old two-toed sloth, hangs off the shoulder of Deputy Jeanne Selander at the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office’s Animal Farm on Stock Island, just outside of Key West, Fla. The annual ‘ Christmas on the Farm, ’ which includes photo ops with Santa and Mrs. Claus, attracts more than 800 visitors to the unique facility that is set up underneath the Monroe County Jail. Horses, pigs, peacocks, snakes, a llama, tortoises, sloths, rabbits, exotic birds and a kinkajou are among the many animals that were either donated, confiscated or rescued in the Florida Keys since 1995.
