Baby sloth reunited with mum in viral video warms hearts

A Costa Rican animal rescue organisation shared a video of a mother sloth and her fallen infant after Mother's Day.

Since May 14, when the Jaguar Rescue Center in Limon, Costa Rica, released the video on Facebook, over 21 million people seen it.

The sloth was spotted May 10 near Playa Chiquita.

The infant's mother was climbing trees, so an employee "took the kid to the vet," the organisation stated. "The sloth wasn't hurt."

Before returning the infant to its mother, the center's personnel "played the baby's scream near the tree to catch the mom's attention"

In the video, an employee holds up the baby sloth as the mother sloth gently down the tree.

50 years after discovering a Milky Way black hole, he saw it.
