ocelot (Leopardus pardalis), two-toed sloth (Choloepus sp.)

OCELOT AND SLOTH. -- In the South American forests there is no more harmless animal than the Sloth, and none is fiercer than the Ocelot. The Sloth derives its name from its slow, crawling movements when on the ground, due to the shape of its toes, but it seldom leaves the trees, where it can move about with considerable rapidity. But it is no match for the agile, cruel, bloodthirsty Ocelot, to which it falls an easy prey when, as here shown, it is discovered by the latter in its prowlings through the swampy forests which are favorite hunts with both of these animals.

The ocelot or dwarf leopard (Leopardus pardalis) is a wild cat distributed extensively within South America. The ocelot is a medium-sized spotted cat. Like many wild cats, ocelots are occasionally kept as pets.

Choloepus is a genus of mammals of Central and South America, within the family Megalonychidae consisting of two-toed sloths. The two species of Choloepus (which means "lame foot"), Linnaeus's two-toed sloth (Choloepus didactylus) and Hoffmann's two-toed sloth (Choloepus hoffmanni), are the only surviving members of the family Megalonychidae.
