Slow Down with a Sloth
Slow Down with a Sloth
Slow down and enjoy this private, 30 minute encounter with ‘Josie’, the Zoo’s famous Linne’s two-toed sloth and her keeper. Guests will have the opportunity to experience Josie up close and personal, including snack time and priceless photo ops! Sorry, no hugging or touching the sloth.

Your ticket includes admission. The Zoo opens at 9:30 a.m., and you are welcome to stay all day on the day of your Sloth Experience.

This Sloth Experience is intended for all ages. All participants must purchase an encounter ticket. Kids under 11 must be accompanied by a paying adult.

This exclusive experience is limited to just ten people per encounter. If you have fewer than ten in your party, you may be joined by other registrants, not to exceed ten persons total.

Allow plenty of time for parking and arrival. The Zoo opens at 9:30 a.m., and you are welcome to explore the Zoo before and after your Sloth Experience. Please be sure you are at the designated area by 10:15am. Guests arriving after the scheduled start time will be unable to join the Sloth Experience.

Sloth Experiences are held rain or shine. This encounter is primarily indoors, but please dress for the weather for the walk to and from the Sloth Experience location.
