FIRST LOOK: Baby sloth born at Denver Zoo

- A sloth born last month at the Denver Zoo will soon be on display to visitors.

The baby southern two-toed sloth was born January 28, 2018, the zoo said. The little furbaby was born to Charlotte Greenie, a 21-year-old sloth who lives at the zoo.

Mom and baby have been resting and bonding, the zoo said. The baby clung to its mother right after birth and will remain attached to her for at least six months.

Sloths are native to rainforests of South America, according to LiveScience.com. The solitary mammals spend most of their time in trees either sleeping or eating. Those in captivity typically sleep 15 to 20 hours a day.
