The Cerro Azul Monster was a creature photographed near the town of Cerro Azil, Panama in September 2009. Its discovery allegedly came from a group of teenagers who, while goofing around, killed the creature. The photograph quickly circulated in Panama and the pictures became viral in the Internet.
The National Environmental Authority of Panama performed a biopsy on the remains after a few days the corpse was discovered. They concluded that the corpse was a male sloth that decomposed underwear, causing the hair loss. The corpse was buried.
