Caption: From Conrad Gesner's "Icones Animalium" published by Christof Froschover, Zurich, 1560. This strange animal is derived from an early conquistador spanish image representing a three toed sloth. The original Spanish version shows the animal tied to the base of a tree, hence the unslothful posture here.
