Caring for infant sloths requires a lot of hard work and dedication.
"They need to be syringe fed goats milk every 4 hours during the day and begin eating leaves from as early as 1 week old!" the sanctuary posted on Facebook. "We are currently caring for 19 orphaned babies that are under 6 months old!"
The Sloth Sanctuary, founded by Costa Rican native Luis Arroyo and his wife, Judy Avey-Arroyo, has rescued more than 500 sloths since 1991. Their very first rescue, Buttercup, now 21 years old, is a permanent resident.
