Edward Scissorhands is a seven-week-old Linnaeus’ two-toed sloth being raised by zookeepers at the London Zoo. The zoo staff had to take over Edward's care and feeding on a diet of goat's milk when his mother was not producing the milk necessary for his development.
Edward will be reunited with mama in several weeks. As of now, a tool used in his development is a sloth stuffed animal supplied by his keepers. Through playtime with the stuffed animal, Edward is learning to hang and develop muscles he'll need to eventually live a sloth's life in the trees. Learn more about Edward at the London Zoo. Via Slate
