WINNIPEG -- It started with The Cute Show and just got cuter from there.

Winnipegger Rachael Hosein and her fiance Kory last year saw an episode of The Cute Show about the Sloth Sanctuary, a refuge in Costa Rica, and they just had to go.

Now a video she recorded on their trip two weeks ago of a baby three-toed sloth named Matty is making it big on YouTube.

Matty picks up a hibiscus flower petal with his little claw and attempts to hand it to Claire, one of the centre's baby sloth care-workers.
