Baby Sloth Update!

Published September 19, 2012

Earlier this month, we announced a new addition to our Aquarium family - a baby Linne's two-toed sloth! Our team has been closely monitoring Ivy and her new baby and we can report that both are very healthy! Taking a cue from Ivy, the baby is even starting to eat  solid foods including fruit and vegetables.

Our staff continues to monitor from a distance, allowing for the natural relationship between mother and child. As the baby grows and begins to feel more comfortable exploring, we look forward to determining the baby's gender.

Watch this video to find out more about our new baby sloth!
