The London Zoo has released photos of its seven-week-old, two-toed baby sloth Edward hugging a stuffed animal.

The sloth is named after Johnny Depp’s role as Edward Scissorhands because of its four-inch-long claws.

It is being hand-reared by a zookeeper, Kelly-Anne Kelleher, after its mother, Marilyn, stopped producing milk. According to the zoo, “To help build up the muscles that Edward would normally use holding on to [mom], keeper Kelly-Anne customised his sloth-teddy with carabiners so that it can be hung from a branch, enabling the youngster to climb on and strengthen his little limbs.”
