The youngest member of the San Diego Zoo’s animal ambassador team cuddled up close to senior keeper Katie Miller this morning during a training session. This five- month-old is a Linnaeus’s two-toed sloth and is currently being trained to meet people up close during special animal presentations and outings.
Guiana (pronounced gee ON a): Two-toed sloths are native to this region in northeastern South America.
Subida (pronounced soo BEE dah): In Spanish, this word means rise, increase, ascent, and way up.
