游客与树懒自拍 萌照走红网络

A man used his selfie stick for a brilliant snap with an a happy creature while trekking through the forest in South America.


The photo has since been shared hundreds of thousands of times on social media , including Imgur and Russian social media site Pikabu.


Commenting on the photo, one person described it as "the only reason one should own a selfie stick," while another poster came up with an ingenious name for the rare pic - a "slofie."


PR manager Andrew Bloch seems to claim taking the picture while on a trek through a rain forest.


Alongside the picture he wrote: "I'm totally against the selfie-stick but every now and then an exception comes along."


The typically shy creatures are hard to spot - and definitely hard to take a photo with as they spend more than 70 percent of their time snoozing or moving slowly through the trees.


But they are actually clever - keeping slow and stationary protects them from predators.


Selfie sticks have been banned at numerous high-profile events and venues in the past year - including Wimbledon and at Disney theme parks and at Arsenal and Tottenham stadiums.


People who used selfie sticks were also listed as the fourth biggest tech sin in a poll of 1,500 adults for The Gadget Show Live.


The Tech Commandments listed "thou shalt not walk and text at the same time" in at number one, but the fourth big 'do not' is using selfie sticks.
