Baby Sloth In a Onesie May Destroy the Internet With Cuteness
Sloths don’t just look adorable, they also have some pretty adorable habits. For example, the orphaned baby sloths in the Avarios Sloth Sanctuary in Costa Rica hug stuffed animals at all times as a way to mimic the interaction they would be having with their mother. Also, they wear tiny onesies. It’s enough cuteness to quite possibly cause the internet to collapse in on itself.
Unfortunately, it’s harder to recreate the rare sloth milk that their mother would be feeding them if she was around. And without the antibodies they would be getting from the milk, many orphaned sloths get mange. However, as you will see, there is a solution for that, and it is also pretty adorable.
The baby sloths get their body shaved, before having a special ointment applied to their skin. So the creatures don’t pick at the medication, they are then wrapped in a special onesie that makes them look like little teddy bears.
Seriously, somebody needs to keep this video away from hysterical sloth fan Kristen Bell. We’d hate to lose her.
