PROVIDENCE, R.I. (SBG) — A zoo in Rhode Island posted a heartwarming video of a mother sloth sleeping with her baby.

"Sleep a lot to save energy to sleep some more," the Roger Williams Park Zoo & Carousel Village joked on Facebook.

The mother sloth can be seen in the video laying on her back with her baby asleep on her chest.

Sloths living in captivity sleep up to 15 to 20 hours a day.
