Baby Sloths Learn to Climb

Last week we shared an impossibly cute clip from Animal Planet's "Meet the Sloths" that showed a mangy baby sloth being wrapped in a makeshift onesie. We're still watching that video several times/day. We can't get enough sloths, and many of you can't either, so here's another clip from the show. BE CAREFUL. This video contains DANGEROUSLY HIGH levels of cuteness. You may want to wait until you can watch it in a private place where you won't embarrass yourself with all the squeeing you'll be doing....

Sloths are among our most favorite animals. The are the chillest dudes and dames in the animal kingdom. Sure, they're slow and they lay about, but they always look relaxed and happy. We love them because we envy them. This video should be hard to watch. It shows a baby sloth with horrible mange being shaved bare, slathered in protective lard and sulfer, then wrapped in bandages.

Now this Redditor's wife is crying with joy when her favorite animal, a penguin, gives her a hug on her birthday during an encounter at Sea World. How about you, dear Paw Nation reader? Is there a certain animal to which you feel such a connection that you'd cry if you ever got to meet one?...

"These guys are not gonna be happy when they figure out what we're doing here." It's baby-sloth bath time in this clip from Animal Planet's "Too Cute." The sloths receive a weekly bath, and apparently they don't like it, but it's tough to tell when they take it so casually. Then again, sloths by their very nature appear to take everything casually. So we'll take their keeper's word for it that this is a stressful activity for them, though adorable to us. But all is well when the freshly scrubbed furballs are given a special snack of hibiscus flowers, aka "sloth chocolate." Could these creature be any cuter? It's like everything about them was invented by an 8-year-old girl with too much...
