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.

  • Bean
  • Clyde
  • Rio

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.
