Ever imagined petting a baby sloth? They're crazy cute and you can get up close to them at the Toucan Rescue Ranch in Costa Rica.

The ranch rehabilitates and releases hundreds of animals that were once at risk due to black market trade and deforestation. At the ranch you can get some quality one-on-one time with these little critters (and yes, they have toucans too!).

Watch as Peter Greenberg makes a new friend at the ranch on this installment of Hidden Gems of Costa Rica.
