    Default Precious Pics: Baby sloths get great care at Costa Rican sanctuary


    We can't quite put our finger on just what makes a baby sloth so cute. Is it the wide-set eyes? The fuzzy little faces? The noses vaguely reminiscent of dogs' noses? (We feel fairly confident in saying that it's not the giant claws.)
    Whatever the mystery ingredients are that combine to make baby sloths adorable, we're thankful that there are creatures such as this out there, and equally thankful that there are animal lovers dedicated to saving them.
    At the Aviarios Sloth Sanctuary in Costa Rica, a team of sloth enthusiasts tend to orphaned and sick or injured sloths of both the two-toed and three-toed varieties. Aviarios even offers tours to the public and an "adoption" program, through which sloth lovers (you know who you are) can provide financial assistance to the sanctuary and learn more about its work.
    See more baby-sloth photos after the jump!
