We have to admit, although we think sloths are utterly adorable, we don't really know all that much about them – apart from that they're lazy, of course.

Which is why zoologist and sloth expert Lucy Cooke has released a book teeming with cute pictures and interesting facts about these lovable creatures.

The snaps were taken at the world's only sloth orphanage in Costa Rica and talks about how they are the perfect snuggling animals, as they love a good hug. Aww!

Check out these super sweet photographs:
