Sloth Images Feature Photogenic Creatures Rescued After Home Destroyed In Suriname (PHOTO, VIDEO)

Last week, we wrote about Monique Pool, a woman in Suriname who rescued 200 sloths after cattle farmers destroyed their forest home in the Guiana Shield.

Conservation International visited Pool shortly after she rescued the creatures, and took some incredible photos of a sloth sanctuary she set up to care for the insanely photogenic animals, including this little guy.

Story continues below.
