Friendships come in all sorts of unlikely shapes and sizes.

But few are as adorable as Edward the seven-week-old sloth who has befriended an equally cute teddy bear (we only know he is special to Edward, he hasn't been named yet).

Edward lives at London Zoo and zookeeper Kelly-Anne Kelleher has taken on the role of his surrogate mother after his biological mother stopped producing milk and is now unable to care for him.

We sense a Disney movie coming along.
