Thankfully, the animal employees of the zoo decided to care about the newborn themselves. They took the sloth and bottle-feed the baby with goat milk every 3 hours. These people even gave the baby stuffed toys to feel comfortable and defended.

The adorable little thing hasn’t got a name yet. The specialists are waiting for the laboratory test that will identify its sex.

Gladly, the baby sloth is doing well now and getting stronger day by day. Visitors can’t get their eyes off the cutest sloth!

In case you don’t know, these creatures are the slowest species in the world of animals. They inhabit Central America.

Sloths spend most of their time hanging down the trees. They sleep from 15-20 hours a day and when they wake up at night, they eat and then sleep again.
