Baby Sloths to Brighten Your Day

Baby-sloth I'm calling it now: by the end of 2010, sloths will have taken the reigns of the internet away from cats. Or, okay, maybe by the end of 2011. Or 2012. Or whenever they manage to get up and make it over there to the cats.


This video of baby sloths playing, eating, and hanging out in their sanctuary that's been circulating the internet is just pure happiness in an embeddable file.


Meet the sloths from Amphibian Avenger on Vimeo.

The Sloth Sanctuary of Costa Rica protects and rehabilitates sloths while studying and observing them to better understand these goofy creatures.

I've always been pretty fascinated by sloths. Their fur is usually covered in bugs and algae, they're amazingly slow, and they always kind of look like the burnouts from college who unofficially changed their names to Jerry. Truly, they are kindred animal spirits of mine.

My son finds sloths cute and hilarious and despite their relatively limited repertoire of facial expressions, also feels that they are the successors to the lolcat throne. I mean, look:

Stoned-sloth
The only possible opponent that stands a chance of out-awesoming the sloths for the title of Most Macro-able Animal is the anteater.

Im-an-anteater

But, I think if it were going to happen, it would have already.

Now I need a baby sloth. Or seven. My wife is not going to be pleased to come home and find I've adopted More Animals.
