This is your chance to meet the slowest and sleepiest animals on the planet – the Linne’s two-toed sloth.

They may be in the ‘Land of Nod’ but they’ll still captivate you in their own mesmerising way.

Did you know?! This unusual leaf-eating animal spends most of its solitary life hanging upside down in the forest canopy. It carries out the majority of its activities in this position such as eating, sleeping and even giving birth!

Due to popularity the availability for this experience may be limited.
