Sloth news!

We’ve got news from our sloth habitat…

Say hello to Flo and Reggie’s newest arrival!

Five-year-old Linne’s Two-toed sloth, Flo, gave birth to their third offspring on June 5, making one-year-old Zippy a big sister!

Primate Section Leader, Jodie Dryden, said: “Both Flo and baby are doing really well. With it being her third baby in two years, she’s very experienced and Zippy is taking a keen interest in her new brother or sister!”

Sloths give birth while hanging upside down, with the baby instinctively crawling on to mum’s stomach where it will remain for at least six months.

We don’t know the sex of the newborn just yet, but keepers are asking for your help in naming our new baby!
