  3. aerliss says:

  4. AliceOlivia says:

    I never comment but this was TOO MUCH! TOO CUTE!

  5. TrixandSam says:

    Apologies to Theresa for stealing her line, but I had to do it:


  6. oh my god that vid was soooo cute! the yawn with lip smack! the falling over when hugging the teddy! the smiles! aaahhhh tooo cute!!!

  7. WaffleCat says:

    *Sigh* What a strange and wonderful land where sloths abound…or rather would abound if they had any gumption to do so.

  8. chanpon says:

    Maybe if all sloths had a terry-cloth cow to snuggle with they wouldn’t be so de-motivated.

  9. @Trix, you’re welcome. 😉

  10. Fishy98 says:

    I’ve never wanted to be a microfiber stuffed cow in all my life.

  11. shannomo says:

    I want one!

  12. OMG! I just watched the video, the little round belly on the one on the jungle gym I so want to scratch that belly!
    And the Lady and the Tramp scene is just too too cute! I just want to cuddle them all! Gi’me it! Mine! Mime! Mine!

  13. 260Oakley says:

    C.O. plays sloth machine, hits jackpot

  14. Omg, where can I adopt a baby sloth? There is no way something this cute could ever be a sin!

  15. Mathasaurus says:

    Is it just me, or do sloths (especially the bebehs) look like Fraggles?

    It might just be me.

  16. Katie Kat says:

    AM DED. These guys are the very definition of “so ugly they’re cute!” That last one… he looks totally stoned! And the two fighting over the bean (or is it asparagus?) Oh deeeeeeeear!

  17. Totally loving the fact that the previous video on AmphibianAvenger’s vimeo page is titled “Chytrid fungus under the microscope”, and is in fact a microscope view of fungus cells set to a lively guitar tune. Obviously a lover of all things natural, whether or not traditionally “cute”. 🙂

  18. MandyMo says:

    The guy on the left in the 5th picture down is keeeeeeling me! I LURVE that goofy expression he has, and they’re snugglin’ under the covers! It’s just TOO MUCH!

  19. LovesDogs says:

    No sin at all for these adorable furry babies.

  20. Oh my goodness these are so adorable.

  21. Peanut's mama says:

    THE definition of “so ugly they’re cute!”

  22. Birdcage says:

    They’ve got a kind of peeg nosicle, don’t they? I want a hug.

  23. Baby sloths. Baby sloths holding stuffed cow thingies and then falling over.

    I need to go find a mop so I can clean up my brain explosion from TEH CUTE!

  24. Watch the video people, watch the video!!!!!!!!!
    I can’t even count how many times I’ve watched it. And I squeee every single time!

  25. OMG I just Awwwed and Awwwed and Awwwwed all the way through those pictures….. Sooooo Cute! Okay now I have to go watch the video!

  26. omg they are sssssssssssssooooooooooooooooo cute!

  27. If cuteness were a vice this guys would be damned.

  28. Saffron says:

    I only got the the second photo of the sloth hugging the stuffed animal and my head ‘sploded and I dropped over DED.

  29. Hon Glad says:

    Cutugly, but those claws say be careful.

  30. I can’t stand it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The slothy cuteness has slain me

  31. Melissa says:

    Awww I just can’t stop looking at this adorable little beast ! =) ❤

  32. Noodles says:

    Bebeh! Hugging cow! I had to squeal just a little bit.

  33. Katrina says:

    Ladies and Gentlemen, we have just been slothed!

  34. I am taking my bunny to be put to sleep at the vet’s in 15 minuts. Thanks for the smile little sloths, I needed it!

  35. Aww, Lottie 😦 *hug*

  36. What ARE these?! They look like theyr made of play-do!

  37. Fleurdamour says:

    Can I go to that spa?

  38. Oh my god, those little snouts are so adorable that I want to run off to the nearest place where you can spot sloths right now! I love the way sloths look so calm and happy hanging from a tree and barely moving, like little Yodas. And there was once yellow sloths bigger than elephants which is very cool.

  39. piggy nosicles…terry cloth cow/giraffe things… synchronized eatings… I always knew there was a reason sloth was my favorite sin…

    Lottie, honey, I’m so sorry. It’s never easy to lose a family member.

  40. Rooanne says:

    So sorry about your Bunny, Lottie 😦

    And thanks Meg, for that very interesting information on the nature of Sloth. I just don’t see it as a very deadly sin at all though, judging by the faces of the babies. They all look like they are smiling!

  41. vidlyvid says:

    A fun fact about sloths is that the hair on the head goes in one direction, and the hair on the body goes in the opposite direction. So pet accordingly!

  42. WOW ! it’s 9:48 am & I’ve just had a full days ration of sweetness ! I guess I don’t need to add sugar to my coffee !

  43. skippymom says:

    In the third picture, it totally looks as though they have little forks in their hands to eat from their dinner plates!

    So sorry, Lottie. I hope you have other furry friends to comfort you?

  44. Poohbear says:
  45. Xtineebee says:

    Thank goodness Robert Downey Jr. never said that we shouldn’t go “full SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE” because, *damn*, I went full squee in about 0.87 seconds.

    I’m going to go lie down.

  46. The little dude(tte) with the stuffed cow… *keeled* me!

  47. Katrina says:

    Dear Lottie- We are here for you, my heavens what a awful day, my sincere condolences and sympathy.

  48. Love the one that hooked the woman’s finger and is slowly pulling it toward its mouf. But the face of that very last one just cracks me up.

  49. Rachael says:

    The moist piggy nosicles have slayed me but the leetle guy with the stuffed cow now owns my heart.

    Lottie, please accept my condolences for your loss. I hope you have lots of happy bunneh memories to fill your heart.

  50. sunnymum says:

    I will cherish pic no. 2 forever and ever. I never could have known they are this cute!

    Hugs to you Lottie, please take care. I’m so sorry for your loss.

  51. Dear Lottie sneding hugs to you for your bunny!

  52. BabyOpossum says:

    I love #4.

    Photographer: “Yes, lovely…I shall call it ‘Still life with green beans’…”
    Slothlet: “Oh hai!!”

    Slowest photobomb ever.

  53. bookmonstercats says:

    Sloths to Lottie.

    I have just checked my dining room table. It originally came from a high quality British supplier but no sloths arrived with it. I checked to see if they had fallen off the edge or sumpthin’, but no. I checked the warranty and it never mentions sloths at all. I’m so glad now that I bought it second hand.

  54. junathen says:

    My new favorite, Tim Minchin, singing a song about sloths!

  55. ShinyBlueSpaz says:

    OMG SLOTHIDIES!!!! I ADORE SLOTHIDIES!!!! They is my second favoramite animimal EVAR! Must…snorgle…*breaks comp screen trying to get to slothidies*

  56. Their noses are mi favorito

  57. DewiCasgwent says:

    Lottie Big hugs

    Bookmonstercats I think the Sloths come with the fine tablecloth where they serve as weights by hanging off the edge of the table

  58. fatgrammafinn says:

    *plinking* (at) me softly….

  59. SatinDoll says:

    The video is merciless. That big Yawwn…then the numming… during nap. *dead*

  60. SatinDoll says:

    And *hugs* 4 Lottie

  61. Hugs for Lottie. Definitely a tough day for you, sweetie. Sending Sloth-ly vibes your way to cheer your day, even one nanosecond of it.

  62. Birdcage says:

    I am often struck, when viewing Cute Overload, that there are people on the planet who seemingly have a better job than I do. I know every job carries stress and demands and the grass tends to be green on the other side of the fence that separates my office from a SLOTH ORPHANAGE but …… right now feeding green beans to orphaned bebbe sloths sounds like something I might like to do. What would my title be: Nutritional Consultant, Sloth Department? Director of Sustinence, Sloth Neonatal Ward?

  63. I swear, at certain points in the video it looks like the slothies are smiling 🙂 love this!

  64. This was so great!!! I love the sloth baby with the stuffed cow. I guess that this is sloth daycare at the orphanage. I love the two babies sharing a green bean.

  65. The smiley one with the green bean and the pig nose is so cute!

  66. kibblenibble says:

    If you have not watched the video, DO! I once had a close encounter with a babeh sloth. He was hanging upside down gazing into my eyes and reaching for me……. and fifteen minutes later was STILL hanging upside down gazing into my eyes and reaching for me. They are truly that sloooww mootion, I loved every loooong slo-mo minute of it! ♥

  67. Aw, who’s a cute little deadly sin?? Yes you are! Yes you are!

  68. SLOTH SCHNOZZLES! *plotz*

    I wanna take my finger and boop those noses. boop boop

  69. Those little sloths stole my heart!

    Lots of kisses for your bunny Lottie!!

  70. Sabrina says:

    I gotta say, sloths are one of my favorite animals 😀
    Thanks for the cute pics!

  71. January says:

    Love these guys…they just seem very nice and polite!

  72. MexicanChihuahua says:

    The wages of sin is CUTE.

  73. Katrina says:

    Yes, Birdcage, those titles are wonderful do tell us if you come up with others!

    By the way, does anyone know- is it legal to put this on my orchestra’s website? I would provide attribution, of course. Thanks.

  74. Their little placid faces…so precious! I love that zen master at the end of the video. It’s like she/he knows all the secrets to the UNIVERSE!!!
    BabyOpossum – you’re hysterical! “Slowest photobomb ever.” hee, hee, hee.
    Lottie, I’m sorry for your loss. Take extra care.

  75. They are so cute! Sloths are like adorable little aliens.

  76. DewiCasgwent says:

    The final sloth is the grand dame of the orphange, that got the humans to set it up Buttercup

  77. Harriet says:

    Hugs to you, Lottie–I’ll tell my beloved kitty, who’s already up at the Rainbow Bridge, to welcome your bunny and provide orientation and snacks.

    And those sloths are quite possibly the cutest things on earth.

  78. emmberrann says:

    Oh slothalinis! *Heddesk*
    @Lottie: so sorry for your loss.Bunny Condolences.

  79. I don’t get it. How did sloths even survive evolution? “Survival of the fittest” my butt. Do they taste like human waste or what? Did lions & leopards & wolves & crocs & such decide to tell their offspring, “Ugh, don’t even bother, they’re not worth it.”? How did they survive evolution? Were they funny? Popular? Have political connections? Technically they shouldn’t exist.

    But let’s weep for the dodo.

  80. > How did sloths even survive evolution?

    Stealth and camouflage. On the other hand, the poor dodo stuck out like a sore thumb 😦

  81. This is the single cutest thing I have EVER seen….what lucky peopple you are to be able to experience such sweetness!!! Sloths have ALWAYS been my faves…and now the world can see WHY!!! AAAHhhhhhhhh it hurts SO GOOD!!!!

  82. Space Cowgirl says:

    I died @ the second pic.

  83. Quizkid says:

    I’m planning a trip to Costa Rica RIGHT NOW!

  84. Nicolette says:

    Whenever I’m having a bad day I watch this video and it makes me feel all better and happy inside. Thank you for brightening my day. 🙂

  85. Really sorry lottie. I have a bunny his name is Flopsy i love him!!!! if he had to be pput to sleep my soul

  86. would die with him.

    (Sorry i didnt mean it)

  88. Skyfire says:

    Mathasaurus @15

    Not so much Fraggles, more like the Mystics from Dark Crystal.

  89. zekenzoey says:

    ha . . this is me, nom-ing on YOUR stringbean! They are so very precious, my soul overflowth with cute-itude once again. Slothes are my very favorite . . .oh, and everyone donate a little to the Buttercup Foundation, please.

  90. BStrange says:

    How did I miss THIS?? So much cute it hurts the eyes. #2 looks like someone successfully combined a peccary with a grizzly bear, and then shrank it and gave it a toy to hug. Squee!

    And it seems the kind people on sloth-feeding duty apparently have no fear of placing a row of sloths within inches of applying those gigantic clawses to that lovely, shiny tabletop beside them! I guess they figure they’ll have plenty of time to stop one if it wanders.

    BabyOpossum: “Slowest photobomb ever” for the win.
