About Folly Farm’s sloth

Two-toed sloths are slow moving, peaceful creatures and can be found in the forests of South America.

Our sloths are called Tuppee and Lightcap. Partial to a nice bit of asparagus every now and again you’ll more than likely spot Tuppee curled in a ball and catching ‘forty winks!’

They are unique in the animal world in that they do spend most of their lives upside down. They eat, sleep and even give birth upside down and because of this, their internal organs have actually re-positioned over a period of time.
