Denver Zoo prepares to welcome baby sloth
DENVER (AP) — The Denver Zoo is getting ready to welcome a baby sloth.
The Denver Post reports the sloth will be the first offspring of Charlotte and Elliot, who were matched as part of a species survival program. Sloths have a 10-month gestation period, so the new arrival could come anytime now through late February.
Charlotte, a Linne’s two-toed sloth, is believed to be between seven and 10 months pregnant.
Visitors can spot her in one of the top corners of a room in Bird World, where she is expected to give birth.
