Space - A colony of mutant species from the Bradypodidae genus of three-toed sloths is suspected of being indigenous to the newly discovered planet.

Imagery from NASA's Kepler space telescope reveals the distinctive arboreal critters whose closest Earth relatives are armadillos, anteaters and the Peregrine Snipe. (You sure? 'Ed')

Indeed, naming the newly discovered exoplanet after the 16th-century German astronomer Johannes Kepler may reflect his great passion for aardvarks, another close relation of the sloth genus.

Improbable as all this sounds a major UK broadsheet reminded the public today that Kepler's old mucker, the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe, himself was a bit weird as witnessed by him having 'a gold nose' and 'keeping a clairvoyant dwarf called Jepp'.

Next week the Agency is to release enhanced footage of the space folivores who appear in pictures published this week.

Long assumed to be incapable of surviving outside tropical rainforests in South and Central America their sudden appearance millions of light years away is nevertheless convincing.

Meanwhile the search for a space Sasquach - or Big Foot - continues.
