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.
Open 10am-3pm Every Day. (Closed on Easter, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day)
