The beast is a two-toed sloth, that's why I've been looking at either 2 fingers 
or a split B.

Hello everyone, 
Looking at this video I would write the performance like this: 
 
 
 
 
I know the hand shape is not exactly correct because in the video the signer 
seems to have no contact between thumb-pinkie to the palm – but this is pretty 
close to that. I guess he wants to indicate that this animal is climbing with 
three toes
 
Hi Val would be great if you could add your best guess!!   - how to spell this 
performance.
 
 
Stefan

This is a challenge to show repetitive movement that imitates climbing. This is 
the sign from dicionariolibras.com
 
 
This is the sign from AcessoBrasil.  I was surprised to find this handshape, as 
it's not listed in the standard dictionaries as a handshape for LIBRAS, but the 
video shows a two-finger split, not a P, or 3-claw.

Here is another writing that may be clearer.  The shoulder shifts down as the 
hand moves up and over to climb a tree, then the other should tilts and eyes 
switch in the direction of movement. This whole movement happens multiple times 
alternately.
 
I think the movement is wrong because the movement is not forward, it's toward 
the center. 

 
Adam, others, does this work?
