    SUBSCRIBE to the Barcroft network:

    A GROUP of doe-eyed sloths learn to climb by scaling and then swinging from the back of a rocking chair. Shot in May, this adorable footage was filmed by zoologist and broadcaster Lucy Cooke during a visit to the Toucan Rescue Ranch in Costa Rica. The wildlife rehabilitation centre uses a rocking chair to help teach the orphaned baby sloths how to climb – as the swaying motion is similar to a tree. Lucy, who has been called the ‘Spielberg' of sloth documentaries, has released a calendar dedicated to the super cute mammals.

                            In watching them, I gain self esteem as a couch potato. It's relative. I wish my relatives knew that.

                                              *You said people shouldn't own a Sloth because they are restless and bite* .You realize dogs do the same and hamster's, mice, rats, birds. So ya Sloths can be pets.
