DENVER (CBS4) – The four-month-old baby sloth at the Denver Zoo is growing up fast! Wookiee was born on April 11 to mom Charlotte, 23, and her mate Elliott, 28.
Wookie still uses his mom for transportation but he’s spending more time on his own, including sleeping alone. Zoo officials say Wookiee is eating all the same fruits and vegetables as the adult sloths.
You can see Wookiee, his parents and their other offspring, Baby Ruth, who was born in January of last year, at the Bird World habitat.
