Big Daddy The Sloth

We confiscated this two-toed sloth, Choloepus hoffmanni, from a smaller scale rescue center and brought him to RAREC. He was already eating solid food independently and was a healthy size of 2.3kg. He was put with a baby sloth called Hope, who he adopted and taught to eat solid food. They were inseparable, however, unfortunately Hope had a malformed jaw, could not eat properly and sadly passed away. Big Daddy is a potential release candidate as long as he can eat on his own, goes to the ground to go to the toilet and is over 3kg.
