Slothful yawns

A baby two-toed sloth yawns in a pile of blankets on Sept. 15 at the Aiunau Foundation in Caldas, Colombia.

The Aiunau Foundation was founded 10 years ago by Croation scientist Tinka Plese with the purpose of rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing sloths who have been targeted by illegal wildlife traffickers.
