Sloth Experience - sold out for now - watch for more dates | Oregon Zoo | Tuesday, 05. December 2017

Slow down and enjoy this private, 30 minute encounter with Josie, the zoo’s famous two-toed sloth, and her keeper. You will have the opportunity to experience Josie up close, including feeding her snacks and getting priceless photo ops!

$74.95 per person, $69.95 for zoo members

Proceeds from these events support the zoo's mission of conservation education and animal welfare, and we thank you for your support.

Space is very limited - reserve your Josie time here.
  • Please add more dates for this! My daughter is obsessed with sloths.
  • How was this advertised? I am a zoo member and didnt know about it!
  • In the wild, sloths typically live quiet, sleepy lives. Being constantly surrounded by noise and people they can’t escape causes them unimaginable stress. Please do not pimp out this poor, imprisoned creature.
  • That ****! I just want to give her a smoosh.
  • Noooooooooooooooooo! Sold out 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
  • Brandy Renee Lea made me think of you when I saw this ❤️

  • Do the zoo keepers tell people that even though THIS sloth might be docile and that you CAN buy a sloth online (they’re all the rage you know) that you SHOULDN’T? Sometimes events like these lead people to go home and buy one....
  • Where will you be announcing future dates? Will it be here?
  • Breanne Johnston you need to do this!
  • Will the sloth be available to look at without paying $75 for private time ? Like the regular zoo animals ?
  • If more dates are added will they be posted here? Or is there an email list?
  • My grandaughter vannessa would love this
  • Nora Lisa Ayala lmaooo
  • Cortney Gonzalez
  • Yeah, I'm interested in this event too until I saw that you have to pay 75$ to hang out with a sloth for 30 minutes.
  • Nadine Butler ummmm...
  • The locals in Brazil hold sweet baby sloths in full sun from 9 am to 5 pm to let tourist take a picture. The natives thrive on that income. Sloths are nocturnal and shade loving. That's what's cruel. I'm sure our zoo keepers consider their well-being which could explain the few dates.
  • Kimberly Perkins ...keep an eye out for more dates. ; )
  • Profiteering on stressing out poor sloths. Don't support the Zoo! 😡

  • The zoo has a famous sloth? I've been to this zoo so many times I can't count (zoo members) never seen a sloth. I'm a HUGE sloth fan... how did I not know this? Any way to find out next time this is offered, since its sold out?
