You are absolutely correct, it would be interesting to see what the sign is in 
Amazonas as opposed to Rio de Janeiro. Looks like my original was the closest, 
but I'm not sure how to show repeated motion with shifting shoulders thrown in.


Oi

Charles

Ha Charles, 
this is so funny. I did not know that there are two-toed  and three–toed 
 creatures of these animals – smile 

 
Well looking at the video bicho-preguiça  I see this hand shape  thumb and 
pinkie touch each other – the other three (!!!) fingers bent – 

 
Stefan ;-)

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 shows bicho-preguica with a bent 2.

Hi Charles,

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?
