Thanks to sloth expert Lucy Cooke–creator of and author The Power of Slothwe now know what baby sloth squeaks sound like. And, unlike what the fox actually says, it's every bit as cute as you're imagining.

These are orphaned animals from sloth sanctuaries in Colombia and Costa Rica, where Cooke started her one-woman PR campaign to make sloths popular so people would donate more money for their conservation.

Her plan is working.


BuzzFeed says sloths are "a thing" that "we need to talk about," and Time says Cooke has succeeded at promoting sloths "perhaps more than anyone has succeeded at anything. Ever."
