Sometimes, you just need to see some pictures of cute baby animals to give your day the boost it needs.
We’re here with pictures of smiling baby sloths to bring some sunshine into your day.
Pardon me? How cute are baby sloths!
Sloths, in general, are already pretty cute, but just look at them as babies!
They have the cutest little smiles on their fresh faces!
They look like they’re just enjoying life to the fullest.
This baby sloth inspires me to be THIS happy about vegetables.
What do you think they liked more: beans or carrots?
Welp, I just C A N N O T even deal.
Who is this petting this baby sloth? I’m jealous.
The Internet’s Already Falling In Love With A New Animal Mascot — A Baby Sloth
Sloths fall into that weird ugly-cute category where some people adore them and others are completely repulsed.
Personally, I’m not a huge fan of adult sloths. The claws get to me.
But baby sloths?
Well, those are frickin’ adorable.
Look at that face!
So, of course, I was excited to see the newest addition to the animals at The National Aviary: Vivien the baby sloth!
Vivien was born in August 2017 but was only just revealed to the public.
Now that she’s old enough, visitors will be able to see Vivien up close and even have the option of a special “encounter,” where they can touch and feed her.
Vivien is named after the actress Vivien Leigh, to match the Aviary’s male sloth named after Rudolph Valentino.
At five months old, Vivien is only about 2.5lbs but will grow to be between 15-20lbs.
I’m not sure how I’ll feel about her when those claws become huge, but right now, I simply adore her little face.
