Happy Birthday, Scout!
Published November 17, 2014
Today, we’re celebrating Scout’s first birthday!
Scout, a Linne’s two-toed sloth, was born at the Aquarium last November. Since then, he’s spent most of his time cozied up to mom, Ivy, snacking on sweet potatoes and fruit.
Linne’s two-toed sloths are found throughout the rain forests of South America. They spend most of their time napping in the trees, only climbing down about once a week to urinate or defecate.
Did you know? Sloths even mate and give birth while hanging upside down!
