Mom's Choice Awards
Most humans think Costa Rica has no army or other armed forces because Costa Rica has no human armed forces. The country has an active security force. I, General Loth, am in charge of the forces. Sloths, birds, animals, frogs, etc. observe the forest. Caimans and crocodiles watch the river entrances. Birds patrol the coasts as well as scanning the skies and the rivers. Since our forces are so numerous, there are always sufficient numbers on alert to be ready for anything.

La mayoría de los seres humanos cree que Costa Rica no tiene ningún ejército ni otra fuerza militar porque no tiene fuerzas humanas. El país tiene fuerzas activas de seguridad. Yo, General Loth, estoy encargado de las fuerzas. Los perezosos, las aves, los animales, las ranas, etc. observamos el interior. Los cocodrilos y caimanes observan los ríos. Las aves patrullan las costas además de observar el cielo y los ríos. Como nuestras fuerzas son tan numerosas, siempre hay suficientes para estar listos para cualquier cosa.
- General Loth
