A tiny baby sloth was born on July 4 at Jungle Island, and people are invited to help name her.
The yet-unnamed two-toed sloth is the daughter of Myrtle and Herbert. Like her parents, she sleeps 15 to 20 hours a day.
Although opening naming rights up to the Internet usually ends poorly (the safest example being the Boaty McBoatface debacle), Jungle Island offers participants the choice of three names: Velcro, Flash or Sid.
To join in on the competition, tag a friend in a comment and add the name of choice on the sloth photo posted to Jungle Island’s Facebook page. On Aug 31, a randomly selected winner gets a family four pack of passes to Jungle Island.
