A baby sloth in London Zoo is using a teddy bear as a replacement mother.
The sloth named Edward - after Johnny Depp's character in 'Edward Scissorhands' due to his claws - lost his mum when she stopped producing milk and zoo keepers were scared that he wouldn't survive on bottle-feeding alone, because the animal also builds strength by clambering over the mother when young.
So handler Kelly-Anne Kelleher customised a sloth-teddy for Edward - who lives in a tree - whilst she bottle feeds him.
She told The Daily Telegraph: "We're bottle-feeding Edward every three hours with goat's milk, topped up with some vitamins to keep him fit and healthy.
"If he's feeling particularly hungry he makes a very funny noise to let us know."
