Fauna: Baby Sloth Sanctuary

By Kasia Cieplak-Mayr von Baldegg

Sloths may share their name with one of the seven deadly sins, but they are just so adorable -- what's not to love? This teaser for Lucy Cooke's full-length documentary Too Cute! Baby Sloths does not disappoint. The Sloth Sanctuary of Costa Rica rescues orphaned babies and treats injured animals in their "slothpital." 

The documentary premieres on December 17 on Animal Planet, and you can find more of Cooke's photographs and videos of the sloths on her Tumblr, Slothville
