Isla Escudo de Veraguas, Panama

Isla Escudo de Veraguas is a small (3.4 km2) isolated Caribbean island in the province of Bocas del Toro, in the Republic of Panama. Although located only 17 km from the coastline in the Golfo de los Mosquitos and isolated for only about 9000 years, several animals found on the island are distinct from their mainland counterparts, and two mammal species are recognized as occurring only on the island: the fruit bat Artibeus incomitatus and the sloth Bradypus pygmaeus, both of which are critically endangered.
