Sloth Sanctuary In Costa Rica Protects Over 100 Injured Sloths!

Filed under: TV NewsEndangeredWildlife

Aviaros del Caribe sanctuary in Costa Rica is the only sloth orphanage in the world that protects baby sloths after their mothers die due to increased roads and power lines invading their habitat.

The creatures have very few natural predators and are only usually vulnerable when they descend their treetop homes once a week to pop a squat on the ground to exercise their bowels.

Unfortunately, they are being run over by invading traffic on the roads crossing through their jungle habitat!

The orphanage, run by legendary sloth whisperer Judy Arroyo, is home to over 100 rescued treehuggers!

Check out the video of all these cute, sluggish sloths as they lounge in luxury at the refuge!
