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.
