Sloths are identified by the number of long, prominent claws that they have on each front foot. There are both two-toed and three-toed sloths. All sloths are built for life in the treetops. They spend nearly all of their time aloft, hanging from branches with a powerful grip aided by their long claws. At the Monterey Zoo, Chloe is one of the most loved animals as she holds on tightly to her keepers. She is a very unique and needy animal, so she is only used in select educational programs and full contact tours.
While providing exemplary animal care, Monterey Zoological Society is dedicated to providing an entertaining yet educational and conservation minded experience which fosters public awareness and respect for all wildlife.
