Filmed by Lucy Cooke and posted to Vimeo a couple weeks ago, the video purports to show what’s going on inside and outside the Aviaros del Caribe sloth sanctuary in Costa Rica, “the world’s only sloth orphanage.” It’s a good thing there’s tape on this because the stills themselves are unreal. I know, because I’ve seen real things, and they don’t look anything like this:
Via Cute Overload, though you actually want to go to Cooke’s home blog The Amphibian Avenger for more information and photos. I particularly draw your attention to this post, which has another picture of a baby sloth holding a stuffed animal that brings us back full circle to the “oh come on, that doesn’t exist” issue.
Meanwhile also make sure to check out Purchase Green, which sells ecofriendly synthetic grass and is sponsoring this month’s Sunday Cute posts. Which means they’re functionally bringing you baby sloth pictures. Click.
