When baby sloths get mange, it can be particularly difficult to treat. Fortunately Judy Avey-Arroyo at the Costa Rican sloth sanctuary has a solution: A shave, a slathering in a special lard mixture, and then swaddling in bandages. The treatment looks extreme, but it seems to work and has the added benefit of leaving the sloths looking cute as all get out.
