Baby Alia’s best friend is a sloth! [VIDEO]
The bond between a little girl and her sloth is simply adorable!
She was just two days old when she met Daisy the sloth, and, five months later, the bond they have is unique and remarkable. They share the same space in the house and enjoy long naps together.
According to Caters News
, Alia’s parents introduced the pair when they brought Alia home from the hospital on the same day that Daisy joined them in the household.
Alia’s mom Julia is a children’s book illustrator, and she’s a passionate conservationist
. She even travels around the US reading to school kids from a series of books on conservation, and, according to the Daily Mail
, she and her husband had planned for a long time to have a baby sloth join them as a visual aid in their speaking engagements. It was purely by chance that the sloth became available on the same day that Alia was born.More:Bad dogs for kidsThe top 5 family pets8 reasons why your child needs a pet immediately!
