A Linneaus’s two-toed sloth, also known as a southern two-toed sloth, was born the afternoon of September 18.
This is the third baby sloth born at the Honolulu Zoo to mother Harriet and father Quando. The two other siblings are both females. Opihi was born on April 24, 2015, and Akala was born on July 17, 2016. They are currently next door with their father so mom can focus on her newborn and maybe get some extra winks along the way. We all know how important sleep is to a sloth!
The baby sloth is too young for staff to determine its sex, so a name for the zoo’s newest arrival will be given at a later date.
Now you can “adopt a sloth” and help support the Honolulu Zoo.
