ATLANTA (FOX 5 Atlanta) - Zoo Atlanta needs your help naming an adorable new member of its family - a 4-month-old Hoffmann's two-toed sloth.
Members of the Zoo Atlanta team have selected six names for the youngest animal in their care, three for a male and three for a female.
The sloth's sex and name will be announced on Tuesday, March 19, on Zoo Atlanta's Facebook page. Voting closes on Sunday, March 10, at 11:45 p.m.
Hoffmann's two-toed sloths are native to Central and South America. Famous for their slow movements, sloth development surprisingly moves at a more rapid pace than the infancies of other mammals.
The newest Zoo Atlanta sloth is currently remaining behind the scenes but will be debuted in the near future.
