New Linne’s two-toed sloth arrives at Dudley Zoo

Flo has arrived at Dudley Zoo and Castle as a breeding partner for fan favourite, Reggie.

The one-year-old has arrived at the Castle Hill attraction from Dierenpark Amersfoort in the Netherlands to partner the four-year-old, as part of a European Studbook Breeding Programme. Curator, Richard Brown, said:

“Flo’s arrival is fantastic news for the zoo. It’s been a species we’ve wanted for a long time and to be in a breeding position with a pair of sloths is brilliant.

“Reggie has been incredibly popular since his arrival a year ago and we know Flo will have just as many fans.”

Flo is currently in the off-show area of the enclosure, but has settled in well. Richard added:

 “She took a while to come out of her crate but moved straight to her nest box and tucked into her tea.

“Keepers will start a slow introduction between the pair in the coming days, with the first step letting them see each other through the enclosure’s mesh.”
