Sloths are those very slow, strange and odd looking animals that methodically eat their grub with a calm and posture you'd expect out of Tibetan monks. Even stranger, they apparently come down from their trees only once a week to go to the "bathroom."

According to Wired, orphaned sloths don't quite know how to go about this weekly ritual and so they need to be trained before they are released back into the wild. Filmmaker Lucy Cooke has been documenting life at the orphanage and put together this short video about the potty training.
