Hoffman’s Two-Toed Sloth
Rare Animal Conservation Center
Life in the Slow Lane
Everyone knows that sloths move slowly, but did you know they do everything slowly? That includes going to the bathroom, which they only do once every 5-8 days. They have to climb slowly down a tree to reach the ground, and then climb slowly back up to reach the safety of the treetops.
Growing Up Grogu
After an 11½ month pregnancy, our female sloth Latte gave birth to baby Grogu on May 27, 2021. Grogu spent the first several months of his life being carried by Latte but is now independent and moving around on his own. Sloths do not reach full size until they are about 2½ years old, so Grogu still has lots of growing and learning to do!
