Awwww! Or should we say y(aww)n! LOLz!
This is so crazy adorbz! Whoever had the idea to cut together vids of animals yawning is a genius.
We had no idea that so many animals yawn in basically the same exact way.
Yawning is the great equalizer!
Seriously, other than being insanely cute, this video makes us yawn.
We bet by the end of this vid, you'll have yawned at least once.
Check out the video (above) for some serious animal cuteness.
Omg, this is so adoraballz!!
Sloths are so freakin' cute it's ridiculous!

What's crazy is the baby is right where it's going to be for the next six months…
Hugging its mama!!
The zoo director said:
"Newborn Sloths use their mother for the first half year as a hammock and cling to her belly fur and cuddle."
Omg, that is seriously the cutest thing we've ever heard!
Baby sloths are nature's cuddlers!! As we previously mentioned!
This baby is the 4th child of mama Alberta so she's an experienced mother.
