Drusillas Zoo Park has recently welcomed a gorgeous baby sloth. The keeper’s team was taken aback.
The staff was taken aback when they noticed a sloth female wandering down from her bed to greet everyone.
Mark Kenward and Gemma Romanis, the park’s resident sloth specialists, have confirmed that a sloth named Halina has given birth.
Halina and Sophocles proudly display their infant, and everyone was mesmerized.
Mark Kenward, the zoo’s animal manager, commented on the unexpected arrival, saying, “We are constantly prepared for the birth of new infants because we know it can happen at any time.” Gemma and I stayed late into the night at the zoo to ensure that everything went smoothly, as this was Halina’s first child. While both infant and mother appeared to be in good health, the baby occasionally became disoriented and climbed onto father Sophocles, remaining there for several hours.”
Halina and the infant have such a close bond. Sloth mother constantly looks after her infant.
Consider these endearing images.
What a great family you have.
