Roger Williams Park Zoo welcomes baby sloth after difficult delivery

Good News Notes:

“Roger Williams Park Zoo has introduced a new animal that was recently born at the zoo.

The zoo welcomed a baby Linne’s two-toed sloth to its family on Wednesday, May 13, and is the child of Fiona and Welsey.

Fiona had a difficult delivery, according to the zoo, and both the mother and baby needed emergency care and a lot of extra help.

Veterinarians and animal care staff manually assisted with the birth after Fiona was unable to make additional progress. The baby was not moving at first, but finally responded after being warmed up.”
