Denver Zoo unveils new two-toed sloth habitat

Published on: June 3, 2021

Charlotte, Elliot, and their son, Wookiee, have been reunited in their new habitat that includes additional space and key features for the family to thrive at the Denver Zoo.

Since Bird World closed its doors at the Denver Zoo in 2019, Linne’s two-toed sloth family has been in search of a new, permanent home within the 80-acre facility.
But now, Charlotte, Elliot, and their son, Wookiee, have been reunited in a new habitat that includes additional space and key features for the family to thrive.

The two-toed sloth family’s new home in the Zoo’s Tropical Discovery on the east side of the campus includes high, sky-lit ceilings, a 22-foot sloth tree with branches.

Zoo-goers will be able to fully walk around the entire exhibit to see the animals climbing trees for moss, lounging in their new treetop home, or sleeping — which they do for 15 to 20 hours each day.

“We built this habitat with the guests in mind, but certainly with the animals in mind too. We really built a new exhibit that is ideal for them and provides all the space they need to be happy and healthy, while also giving guests a unique perspective on one of their favorite animals,” said Jake Kubie, the zoo’s director of communications.

with Palm Done Right

Palm can be grown for good, bringing benefits to:

  • Our planet, due to palm oil’s land efficiency.
  • Local communities, due to the economic development oil palm production creates.

  • Manufacturers that are still using conflict palm oil for their products.
  • Retailers that are still listing products that contain conflict palm oil.
  • Brokers and distributors that are still supplying their customers with products that contain conflict palm oil.
  • Shoppers that have the power to vote with their dollar.
