I am traveling to Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru in 2 weeks and one of the places I will be is Leticia, Colombia. I have seen people's pictures with sloths (locals having you hold the sloth, or sometimes a bird, for a small fee). Anyway, as I will be traveling alone and I don't have anyone with me to take the picture, is it safe to hand over your camera for a photograph? I would assume it is in this case, since these guys probably do this everyday and are reputable. And as long as it is in a well-trafficked tourist area. But it kind of is counter the whole being careful with cameras and valuables. Has anyone ever had someone run off with their camera while taking one of these photos?
Thanks for any info!
