DENVER (CBS4) – Two days after releasing video of an ultrasound showing a baby in the uterus of an animal, the Denver Zoo has revealed what kind of baby it is.
It’s a sloth!
Denver Zoo officials said sloths Charlotte and Elliot are expecting a baby.
“Charlotte is somewhere between 7 and 10 months along in her 10-month gestation period, so we’re expecting a baby sloth sometime between now and March,” they said in a Facebook post.
Charlotte, whose “last name” is Greenie, is a Linnaeus two-toed sloth. She was brought to the zoo in 2015 and introduced to Elliot soon afterwards.
Zoo staff are doing ultrasound work with Charlotte at her exhibit in Bird World every day at 3 p.m. The best chance for zoo visitors to see her moving around is probably at that time.
