San Antonio Zoo is excited to announce the winners of the Linnaeus’s two-fingered sloth naming competition! Through the generous support of the public over the last month, we are happy to share that “Sol” and “Luna” are the official names for these beloved male and female sloth pups. Sol, meaning sun and Luna, meaning moon, can be seen inside the John & Greli Less Butterfly Rainforest at San Antonio Zoo – the only zoo in the country that houses tropical butterflies and sloths together.
Sol and Luna, both under one year, join Yavari, a 29-year-old Linnaeus’s two-fingered sloth, on the Animal Ambassador Team (AAT). The AAT team provides irreplaceable up-close experiences around the zoo and community. Through presentations and meet and great, the AAT staff shares their animal care and education expertise, connecting and inspiring guests to secure a future for wildlife in Texas and worldwide.
