BALTIMORE (WJZ)–  The National Aquarium has a new addition!

Scout, a Linne’s two-toed sloth, was born on Nov. 17.

Scout is the fourth sloth born at the aquarium, and the second born to Ivy.  Scout is one of five slots in the exhibit.

The two oldest sloths currently living in the rain forest, Syd and Ivy, were acquired in May 2007 from a private captive breeder in South Florida. Howie and Xeno were born at The National Aquarium in 2008 and 2010. Camden, Scout’s sibling, was born at the National Aquarium in 2012.

Linne’s two-toed sloths are commonly found in South America’s rain forests, where they spend almost their entire lives in the trees and are nocturnal.

To celebrate the birth of Scout, National Aquarium has set up a baby registry at www.aqua.org/babysloth and is asking the public to shower the sloth with gifts. People can make donations through the website to help purchase items such as vegetables and fruit, microchipping and the baby’s monthly checkup.
