Adopt an Animal: Southern Sloth
Your gift will be used to support the San Francisco Zoological Society and further our mission to connect people to wildlife, inspire caring for nature and advance conservation action. An adoption of a sloth makes a great gift! All sales are final.
Southern two-toed sloths spend most of their time high up in the forest canopy. Because they spend most of their time hanging in trees, their fur grows in the opposite direction of other mammals and has special grooves in it which hosts algae, which serves as camouflage. Southern two-toed sloths are primarily nocturnal and solitary animals and can live up to 20 years in the wild and 30 – 40 years in captivity.
