A selfie of a man and a sloth is currently getting the attention of many people online.

“There’s nothing unique about a selfie. Anybody can take one, which is why there are now more selfies on the internet than there are people on the planet. But no matter how much you pout, pose, or pretend to be enjoying yourself, your selfie will never be as good as Nicolas Husclar’s selfie. Because his isn’t an ordinary selfie. It’s a Slofie!” wrote James Gould-Bourn in an article which he wrote on Bored Panda, which has gotten more than 8,000 views as of posting. It was also shared by the aforementioned site on its Facebook and Instagram accounts.

The photo has got thousands of shares and reactions online; getting a lot of positive comments from social media users, too.

“That’s the most epic selfie!” wrote Instagram user @big.sexy352.

“This is an acceptable use of a selfie stick,” @wingchunwoman_nic said.

“What a pose! I just love sloths!” said Facebook user G.R.

Some, on the other hand, believe that Husclar disturbed the animal.

“It is not nice to bother animals just to take selfies. People should learn that better,” commented @juliano.txr.

“Harassing wild animals for the sake of a fu**ing selfie,” wrote P.R.

“You actually have no idea how this did or didn’t affect the animal. Respect nature and view it at a distance. Lots of animals die because egotistical people just have to have a cool selfie,” said F.W.

Sloths are drowsy tree-dwellers which sleep up to 20 hours a day, according to the National Geographic. To note, they barely move even when they are awake. In fact, they’re so incredibly sluggish that algae actually grows on their fur.
