“The only reason one should own a selfie stick.”

Man Takes Sloth Selfie

Forget selfies in front of the Eiffel Tower or on the edge of a cliff. The award for most awesome self-portrait has to go to Andrew Bloch, who scored a photo opp with an adorable sloth.

Though the species is typically shy, this slow-moving creature was camera-ready as he hung from a tree with an apparent smile on his face. The man below threw up a peace sign to take the selfie from amazing to phenomenal.

“I'm totally against the selfie-stick but every now and then an exception comes along,” said Bloch.

Clearly we weren’t the only ones who loved the photo: More than 1.8 million people have already viewed it on Imgur after user NicolaHuskar posted it on Sunday.

“The only reason one should own a selfie stick,” user kiduseshetu wrote.

“This is the most majestic thing I've ever seen,” wrote mollytheginger.

Perhaps the best comment of all came from bigbowllofravioli who coined a whole new term for the photo: a slofie.
