Drusillas Park, in East Sussex, United Kingdom announced this week the arrival of something special: a baby two-toed sloth, the zoo's first in 91 years of operation.
The tiny slow-mover was born March 26 to proud (presumably) parents Sophocles, the father, and Sidone, the mother.

According to the zoo, the newbie is just the fourth sloth baby in the U.K. in the past year.
"With very few sloths born in captivity, every new arrival is important to further our knowledge of these beautiful and mysterious animals," said Mark Kenward, the park's head keeper, in a statement.
Sidone is a first-time mother, said the zoo. She and Sophocles have been together since 2014, but, true to their slothful (as it were) nature, they took a long time to mate.

Zoo staff had readied themselves, in case the new baby would need to be hand-reared. But, by all accounts, Sidone is doing fine in her first days of motherhood.
"She hasn't put a foot wrong, or even two toes," said Kenward.
