There are a ton of adorable videos online that feature wide eyed sloths. The slow moving creatures are loved by lots of people the world over, and it’s easy to see why. They are always well behaved and very gentle, docile, and non-aggressive in their mannerisms and movements.

Sloths also make the cutest noises and if you haven’t hear what they sound like yet then you have to check out this video from YouTube channel Slothville TV. The video shows several sloths, including baby ones and grown up adults. They all make the cutest noises that seem to be quite appropriate and in line with their slowness.

It sounds almost like they are crying out in exasperation at how hard and annoying moving a few inches seems to feel like for them. The tiny newborn ones make a more squeaky, high pitched noise and it sounds like a cry that a baby animal would make.

As a point of comparison, the noises they produce are almost exactly like the sounds people make when they are not into something, or grunt halfheartedly, kind of like a “meeahh.” However, when it’s coming from a little crawling sloth’s mouth it’s 100x more cute and precious, by far. Sloths got their unflattering name due to the fact that they move so slowly.

However, they are built for this and are not the lazy, sluggish, lethargic mammals that we often view them as. Sloths only move when necessary because they need to conserve as much energy as possible due to their diet consisting of mainly leaves. Leaves provide little energy and are hard to digest.

Which is why sloths have specialized stomachs that slowly break down leaves and it often takes them a month or more to digest the contents of their stomachs completely. Other ways they conserve energy include low metabolic rates and low body temperatures, and of course, slow paced movements.

Enjoy the video below! This is guaranteed to make your day! 🙂
