The world's oldest two-toed sloth turns 50

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A zoo in Germany is celebrating its new record-holder Paula, who has just become the oldest known two-toed sloth in the world.

Paula lives in Halle Zoo in central Germany, and at 50 years of age she has been entered into the Guinness Book of Records, the Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper reports.

Her keepers estimate she was at least two years old when she reached Germany from South America, but for more than 20 years they thought she was a he.

Two-toed sloths can live to about 20 years in the wild, and 30-40 in zoos.

Aww bless her. I Love sloths, when I see them moving around they project the energy I want to, to my dogs. They are so calm and relaxed.
