Two-toed sloth baby born, name her

This 24 December 2015 video from Amersfoort zoo in the Netherlands is about the birth of a Linnaeus’s two-toed sloth.

Sloths don’t often reproduce in zoos. However, for Amersfoort zoo this is the tenth youngster born in their nocturnal animals‘ hall. For mother Amaka and father Quasimodo of the newborn baby, is is the sixth time.

The youngster is female, but does not have a name yet. Amersfoort zoo asks people to suggest suitable names on their Facebook page. As Linnaeus‘s two-toed sloths are from South America, names with connections to that are prefered.

Welcome to The Sloth Institute, the protector of wayward baby sloths: here.
