The Costa Rican Sloth Orphanage

Meet the sloths from Amphibian Avenger on Vimeo.

A note from the director:
I filmed this at the Aviaros del Caribe sloth sanctuary in Costa Rica - the world's only sloth orphanage. Baby 2 and 3 toed sloths, whose mother's have either been run over or zapped by power lines are brought to the sanctuary and looked after by legendary sloth whisperer Judy Arroyo. For more sloth photos and videos follow my blog pinktreefrog.typepad.com/ or twitter twitter.com/amphib_avenger. For more on the sanctuary go to slothrescue.org/.

My heart is melting. Sloths have orphanages? View more at Vimeo.
