Mama Sloth Reunites With Baby After Being Separated During Bolivia’s Wildfires

We all need our moms, especially when we’re young. Even little baby animals, who are pretty much born fairly independent, rely on their moms at times for care.

During times of stress, no one provides comfort quite like mom. We see that depicted so accurately in a video featuring two sloths.

Sloths are quite unusual little creatures. They move so slowly, and their faces make them look like they’re in a constant state of confusion, and that somehow makes it even more heartbreaking watching them go through hardships.

For a mother and baby sloth pair, life was pretty hard following some wildfires in Bolivia.

The video below features a baby sloth who is crying and getting reunited with its mom. Because of the wildfires, the pair were rescued but during the rescue, they were briefly separated.

It must have been very hard on both to be kept apart from one another, making the moment that they meet such a beautiful moment. Their reunion is definitely one that pulls at the heartstrings. We suggest watching with tissues.

The tender moment was captured and uploaded to Facebook by Marco Greminger, who wrote (translated), “A mother’s heart is the most beautiful place for a child. In all the space of the Universe there is only one heart like this.”
