Mom and baby were separated while fleeing local wildfires. A mom being separated from her kid is the worst heartbreak they can really feel. It’s true whether that mom is a human or pet.
That’s why a Bolivian sloth couldn’t have been more overjoyed when she was rejoined with her lost child.
Wildfires burned up the bushland where the mother and her baby were living. This forced them to have to flee to a neighboring town.
Unfortunately, the momma and her baby somehow became separated in the process. That sloth ended up in the care of veterinarian Marco Greminger.
He obtained a phone call about a baby sloth that was found alone near the town of Trinidad. It was believed that the mother and baby were separated after running into some unfriendly dogs.
But Mother wasn’t about to be run off by a bunch of cranky monsters.
Not when it came to securing her child.
Greminger thought that this may be the situation and found mom hiding in a tree 300 ft. away from where the baby was found.
So, he brought the baby to where mom was and left the child nearby so she could come and collect him.
Their get-together was caught on video clip, and you could visibly see how relieved they were to be back together once again. The little baby squeals gladly when he sees his mother near.
According to Globe Wild animals Foundation, sloths move slowly due to their incredibly low metabolic rate.
They travel an average of 41 yards per day which is less than half the length of a football field.
She immediately scoops him up when’s within her grasp.
She nuzzles his face and it appears like she’s covering him with kisses.
The little baby clings to his mother and seems like he isn’t about to let go any time soon!
“A mother’s heart is one of the most beautiful place for a child. In all the space of the Universe there is just one heart like this. Thanks to the call of his princess (Maria Esther) from my friend Dorian Quiroga del Rio the reunion of mom and son was achieved,” Greminger wrote on Facebook.
Greminger intended to make sure that these sloths would be able to thrive on their ownm so he brought them back to his clinic for a examination.
After he identified that they were both in good health, the mother and son were gone back to the wild.
Greminger published a video of the sloth on his Facebook page, where it was seen more than 29,000 times.
“This really made me cry and happy. The love of moms and dads. Pure beauty,” said one Facebook commenter.
“Very priceless, this made me cry. The way the mama sloth got her baby, smelled her or him, and kissed is enough to make humans think that animals are like us, emotion and feelings smart,” one more said.
