A baby sloth snuggles into its mum in cute pictures released by Dudley Zoo of its latest new arrival.

The two-toed sloth pup, which is yet to be named, was born at the Castle Hill attraction two weeks ago.

It is the second offspring born to zoo's sloth couple, Flo and Reggie, who already have a young one-year-old named Button.

The newborn belongs to one of two groups of sloth and is a Linnaeus's two-toed sloth, which takes its name from two long curved claws at the end of each of its limbs.
