About Drusillas sloths:

Four beautiful sloths live at Drusillas. Our younger sloths Flash (Flash was hand-reared here at the Park) and Gordon can be found in our South American enclosure, whilst our big male Sophocles and our newest arrival Curly can be found living with our fruit bats a little further along the zoo route.

Linne’s two-toes sloths are found in tropical rainforests in northern South America, they spend almost all of their time hanging upside down from trees by their four long limbs. You’ll fall in love with our beautiful sleepy sloths as soon as you see them; sponsor a sloth today for a truly magical gift.

Corporate Adoptions 

With almost 400,000 visitors a year a corporate sloth adoption would give your company the unique opportunity to advertise your services or products on a plaque alongside other current adopters and will show your support of Drusillas and the valuable conservation work we undertake. We have two corporate adoption schemes which start from £100 and include a minimum of four complimentary entry tickets. Please email us at [email protected] for more details.
