A zoo has announced the birth of their first sloth | SWNS TV
A zoo has announced the birth of their first sloth, but the cutie is so shy it doesn't want to leave its 'snuggly blankie.' The tiny sloth, which has not been named yet, was abandoned by its mother, so staff at Brevard Zoo have been hand-rearing it. But it is so shy it refuses to let go the comfort blanket, which acts as a surrogate mother. Sloths are notoriously difficult to sex, so staff do not yet know the gender of their newest arrival. Staff at the zoo, in Florida, USA, wrapped the 11 ounce baby in a gift shop blanket and started feeding it goats milk every two-and-a-half hours.
