Why do people love sloths? (Duh, they're cute!)

 While generally we find all sloths so adorable, there is a way to take it to the next level. Yes, of course we are talking about baby sloths!

That being said, some people don’t even know what a baby sloth looks like.

Baby Sloth Pics

A baby sloth snuggling up against us sounds wonderful, right?  Well, actually, that’s kind of controversial. A strong case can be made that sloths do not like being held by humans. If you are interested in that topic, please read our article Is It Okay to Hold a Sloth? In the meantime, you can still see this picture and recognize the cuteness of the baby sloth in this picture. 

One of the many amazing things about baby sloths is that they are born with the innate superpower that all sloths have to climb. This sloth looks to be a few weeks old and looks like a master climber, but even a newborn baby sloth can immediately cling on to its mother or a tree branch to ensure its safety in the jungle canopy. 

Like many animals on earth, from humans to snakes, sloths can sometimes be albino, that is to say they are devoid of or severely lacking in pigment and have an almost all white color. That’s what we see here, an albino baby sloth from the Sloth Sanctuary Costa Rica, an organization dedicated to rescuing sloths and preserving their species.
