Zoo Atlanta welcomes baby sloth

- Zoo Atlanta is celebrating the arrival of an adorable new member of its family, a baby sloth. 

Bonnie, an 18-year-old Hoffmann's two-toed sloth, gave birth to an infant on Sunday. The baby sloth is doing well and is bonding with its mother in the sloths' behind-the-scenes indoor area. 

“We’re delighted about the birth of Bonnie’s infant and are looking forward to sharing more about its growth and development,” said Jennifer Mickelberg, PhD, Vice President of Collections and Conservation. “Animal adaptations make up some of the most fascinating educational facts we have to share with our guests. This is especially true of the sloth, an animal about which so much is unusual compared with other mammals.”

The baby sloth's name has not yet been announced.
