Sloths are cute, slow and cute.
Also, did we mention super cute?
And baby sloths are all that times ten!!
At the Schönbrunn Zoo in Austria a new baby two-toed sloth was born.
The zoo director said:
"Newborn two-toed sloths use the stomach of the mother as a cradle and climb, well camouflaged, into the cuddly fur. As a consequence the baby was very difficult to photograph."
They must also be especially difficult to photograph when they're always making funny faces and sticking their tongues out, making it hard to get a good pic.
The baby will stay clinging to its mother for the first six months before trying to hang on its own.
And that's fine by us since it looks so darn cute clinging to its mama like that.
