Your morning adorable: Rescued baby sloths have a (slow) eating contest
Something about these little guys reminds us -- in a strange, slow-motion way -- of Japanese competitive-eating sensation Takeru Kobayashi (minus his unfortunate run-in with the law).
Aviarios has been raising orphaned baby sloths and nursing injured or ailing adult sloths back to health since 1992. Since sloths are slow-moving, they're no match for cars, so baby sloths lose one or both parents far more often than anyone would like. Fortunately for these guys, they have folks looking out for them -- and all the vegetables they could want.
