Say Hello to "Matilda" the Two-Toed Sloth!

Below you will find more information on how to meet Tilly up-close and personal. Please keep in mind that Tilly is just a baby and will need time to adjust to new situations, therefore all programs are subject to change in order to provide the best care and support for her during this time.
