The Linnaeus two-toed sloth was born to Sid and Sylvia on Nov. 17 at the Animal World and Snake Farm.

"The birth was an unexpected surprise for animal care staff members," the zoo said in a release. "Due to the sedentary lifestyle of the sloth, along with their thick, wiry fur, it is exceedingly difficult to see outward signs of pregnancy."

The unnamed baby will wean on its mother until it eventually becomes part of exhibits for the zoo.
