Sloth photobombs holiday snap


Why let others have the limelight when you can bask in it yourself?

That's certainly the motto of this cheeky sloth, who jumped at the opportunity f0r a spot of self-promotion as youngsters gathered for a photo in dense woodland on Costa Rica.

As the group from the International Student Volunteers expedition posed for the jungle snap, the fame-hungry sloth lowered himself into the frame - placing himself firmly at the centre of all the action.

His smooth manouvre was so subtle, the students weren't aware of the gatecrasher in their midst; it was only when they checked back at the picture that they realised they had been photobombed in spectacular style.

However, the inquisitive sloth is by far the only animal to try out a spot of photobombing.

Earlier this year, the Obama's "first dog" Bo sneaked into the frame during a live report from the White House lawn (above).

And these meerkats at Longleat Safari Park aren't so much photobombing as making it impossible to take a photo to begin with...
