Linne’s Two-Toed Sloth

Welcome to Life in the Slow (and Snuggly) Lane

The Denver Zoo animal family currently includes three Linne’s two-toed sloths: patriarch Elliot, matriarch Charlotte, and rising star Wookiee. Our youngest slow-lane traveler, born in April of 2019, spent a year bonding with mom before joining the Animal Ambassador team. Of course, we think the best way to get to know Wookiee is to book a private sloth encounter—but adopting a sloth is a solid backup plan.  

With your symbolic adoption, you’re helping us provide cutting-edge care for our sweet sloth family and the rest of our 3,000 wild animals—while also supporting our mission of Inspiring Communities to Save Wildlife for Future Generations.
