When the news cycle gets you down, just remember: Baby sloths are probably being born ALL THE TIME, somewhere. And when they’re born at zoos, like this Linne’s two-toed sloth born at the Ellen Trout Zoo in Texas, we get to hear all about it and see pictures. Just close all your other tabs; this is the only one you need.
