The animal kingdom is vast and full of surprises. If you are interested in wildlife and its habitants, you must have come across several wild animals that can make you feel weird and surprised as well. However, the behaviour of wild animals is unpredictable. While some may react violently, some may win your heart. 

However, here we bring a video of a mother sloth, its baby and a human that will likely fill your hearts with warmth and love.

As seen in the video, a baby sloth is stuck at the trunk of a tree, a few inches above the ground. A man approaches the baby and lifts it up carefully. While the baby starts screeching, the man carefully moves it upwards. 

The man brings the baby sloth closer to an adult sloth clinging to a branch of the tree. As soon as the baby comes closer, the mother sloth grips the baby with its claws and holds it tight. 

The mother pulls the baby forward towards the front and stretches its claws towards the human. As it seems from the gesture of the mother sloth, it expressed its gratitude and thanked the man for helping its kid to reunite with its mother.


Animals do have feelings just like humans and they also express emotions just as we do. Being kind towards animals costs nothing to humans. They do have equal rights to live freely without any fear and not struggle to survive amid the cruelty of humans.
