Jaguar Rescue Center

Last week we were in Puerto Viejo, a small town on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica which was originally english speaking and was called Old Port before the government decided to rename it Puerto Viejo - which is old port in Spanish. Originally it was Jamaicans that lived there so you will hear a lot of reggae music.

In Puerto Viejo there is a place called JRC (Jaguar Rescue Center) where they rescue animals that were abandonned or hurt, though they don't have any jaguars.

In JRC there are monkeys, sloths, crocodiles, alligators, caimans, snakes and many more animals. All the sloths are two toed exept for one which is technically a two toed but she was born with a rare mutation that made her only have one claw on the front feet.
