You know those days when you just can’t? This sloth is definitely having one of them. Found on a highway in Ecuador, this little guy clung to a pole for dear life rather than braving the rest of his journey across the hectic street. He was so resilient that the Transit Commission of Ecuador had to stop by to help, but not before posting some seriously adorable pictures.

And just like that, our hearts were stolen. That face! The way it gently clings to the pole! The fact that grown men and women took time out of their day to perform this very urgent rescue mission! It’s all too much.

Of course, some people saw these photos and got a little worried. Why wasn’t this little guy moving? Luckily, the Transit Commission of Ecuador posted a follow-up in the comments that puts our hearts at ease. A rough translation reads:

Our sloth friend was just taking a break, at the same time inspiring us to be our true selves. In one way or another, aren’t we all just sloths trying to make it across the road? Okay, maybe that’s a stretch, but we definitely all think they’re super cute.
