Happy #WildWed from Stone Zoo!

Stone Zoo
This #WildWed, get up close and personal for snack-time with Linne’s two-toed sloths Lunesta and baby Molasses!

Fun fact: sloths are omnivores but eat a mainly vegetarian diet. Sweet potatoes are a favorite treat for the sloth family here at Stone Zoo!

Bo Zavala omg soooo cute! Who knew sloths could be this adorbs. Melts my little black heart πŸ–€

I'm trying to imagine a wild sloth trying to catch a meat based meal. I can see why they usually eat vegetables.

I wish Houston had more sloths

Too cute

I just wanted to take a minute to thank the Houston Zoo for all the great work you do. We have been members for the last 4 years and I have been taking my three kids there since they were babies. I can see that the zoo always strives to make continuous improvements and make everyone's visit enjoyable. Our latest visit was this last Saturday where we were greeted by a very friendly employee at the gate and got to enjoy many of the animals. Highlights included the baby tapir, orangutan, and tiger feeding/keeper talk. Thanks for all you do, Houston Zoo!!

Cindy show Conner this. He rode on a Tapir on the carrousel on Saturday!

No, not biased! It should totally be a thing.
