For some reason, people seem to have strong reactions to sloths, and this encounter was no exception.
An American woman holding a sloth that appeared to be embracing her broke down crying in a video published to YouTubeon Tuesday.
‘Oh, my God,’ she said, while stroking the furry mammal. ‘It’s so soft.’

Quivering lips and a reddened face gave it away that she was overwhelmed with joy by the experience of petting the furry creature.
It is not known where the video was filmed.
Sloth enthusiasts might recall a similar reaction that actor Kristen Bell had when her husband, Dax Shepard, brought home a sloth.
