A baby and a sloth have formed an incredibly sweet bond, and a video of their relationship has gone viral. According to Life & Style Magazine, a 5-month-old baby and a 9-month-old sloth have become the best of friends. Julia and Jason Heckathorn brought home their baby girl the very same day that they decided to get a pet slot. While many new parents have a cat or a dog to keep their newborn company, baby Alia has a different kind of pet.
Daisy the Sloth and baby Alia read together, do tummy time together, and even nap together. Their relationship is super sweet, even if it is a bit odd.
According to the New York Daily News, the Virgina family has a bunch of other animals too, and they all get along well with the new baby. However, none have such a close relationship with her as Daisy does.
“When Alia and Daisy sit next to each other, Daisy sniffs Alia while Alia nuzzles into Daisy’s soft fur. They are so sweet together. They even wear the same-colored flower headpieces in their hair,” said Julia Heckathorn.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, a video of a dog and a baby went viral earlier this month. The baby was jumping in a doorway swing, and the dog was trying to chase the shadow on the ground. Check out that viral video here.
