The team announced the sloth is a girl named Willow.
“If it was a boy his name would’ve been Bean,” one of the sloth care team members said in the video. “Make sure to come later this spring to see Willow out in her habitat,” another team member said at the end of the 1-minute video.
Dozens of Facebook users chimed in with congrats and adoration for Willow.
Willow’s mother and father, Bonnie and Cocoa, have another offspring, an older sister named Raisin, born in 2015, who currently lives in another zoo.
Kimberly Eldridge wrote "YAY!!! My daughter was so excited that she named a baby sloth!"
Ashlie Massey was one of many who talked about Willow being "adorable."
