This sloth whose name is Sjakie is actually from the Burgers’ Zoo in the Netherlands. According to Spiegel Online, the teddy bear is being used as a surrogate to help feed the sloth, because Sjakie’s mother wasn’t producing sufficient milk. Sjakie had to be fed by syringe, but since sloths love to cuddle when they eat, the teddy was an important addition to meal time. Isn’t that the cutest thing ever?
