WATCH: This tiny newborn sloth and its proud mum

So cute.

IT’S FRIDAY, SO you don’t need any excuse to watch this video of a teeny-tiny newborn sloth licking its mum’s face.

This is the first baby for two-toed sloth couple Hershey (the mum) and dad Carlos at Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago.

The little mite has been clinging so tightly to its mum that its sex hasn’t yet been determined, AP says.

All together now: Awwww.
