Two-toed sloth in the Living Conservatory. Photo: Karen SwainJoin us for a special evening tour of the Living Conservatory exhibit for an opportunity to see the two-toed sloth at his most active – as active as the slowest of mammals gets. A summer evening is the perfect time to catch a glimpse of the sloth coming down from his perch in the tree while the butterflies are still active. Our sloth spends most of his time sleeping and hanging around, eating leaves and fruit. 

Get a unique perspective on these tropical animals and more in our newest special exhibition, Rainforest Adventure. Fly like a butterfly, swing like a monkey and jump like a frog! Visitors to this new exhibition are invited to explore one of the least-known habitats on Earth in a fully interactive maze, chock full of the sights and sounds of a tropical rainforest.

Note: Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a ticketed adult to gain entry into the exhibits.

Although conditions are best for sloth viewing at this event, we cannot guarantee he will play along. The sloth spends 15-18 hours a day sleeping and enjoys peace and quiet. No refunds will be issued for lack of sloth activity.
