Thanks for all of the name suggestions! My friends at @stockmanbank narrowed it down to five and now you can vote for your favorite. Just click on the link in my bio to help us pick the best name for me. In the meantime, Director Jeff told me that my formal scientific name is “Choloepus Hoffmanni.” But you can just call me Choloepus until we tally your votes. (VOTING NOW CLOSED)
It's official! After more than 1,000 different name suggestions and 8,000 votes on the final five choices, you can now call me ... WINSTON! Thank you to my friends at @StockmanBank, and to all of you who shared name ideas and voted. I love my new name! I even mustered the energy to show you my excited face. Just curious ... is this how humans get names, too?
We’ve finally arrived, and boy oh boy am I a VIP. You should see the sweet new habitat ZooMontana built for me. Even though the journey took literally forever, I’m happy to be home here at ZooMontana. You’ll be able to visit me very soon! Keep following me to learn when I will officially be ready. But don’t you dare wake me.
I’m getting so excited (as excited as a sloth can be) to meet all of my new friends at @ZooMontana. Director Jeff and I are just working on making sure I’m ready to start welcoming visitors, so I’m currently hanging out in this super top secret bunker at the Zoo. I should be moving into my new habitat very soon. More accurately, someone else will be moving me. After that journey to get here, I’m DONE. Do you have any idea what it’s like driving a moving truck while you’re upside-down?
Hi, friends. Director Jeff wanted me to pass along his apology that my habitat isn’t quite ready yet. He and I know you’re all really excited to meet me, and I’m certainly excited to meet you all! He says it may be another month, so keep checking in with me and @zoomontana for updates. Director Jeff and his team are thinking up new ways I can keep you entertained until you’re able to visit me. In the meantime, keep hangin’ in there. Get it?... 🤣
Sorry I haven’t been very active this week. (That’s something I bet you never thought a sloth would say). I’ve been busy reading all of my mail with Director Jeff. Well, to be more accurate, I do most of the reading. He only likes the pictures. You are all some fine writers and talented artists, and I love getting your letters and drawings! They keep me busy while I wait for my new house to be finished.
Taking a break from this delicious snack to deliver an urgent news bulletin. Director Jeff says my new house is ready and I will be moving in this week! I've got a lot of unpacking to do, but I will be ready to meet all of you starting next Wednesday, October 14. Can't wait to give you all a tour of my new digs!
Wowza! Look at my new house! My friends at @StockmanBank, @VisitMontana, @MontanasTrailhead, and everyone here at ZooMontana did such a great job, don't you think? I can finally start to meet all of my new friends out there!
I know you've been waiting so patiently, but please be sure to check with my humans here at @ZooMontana (www.ZooMontana.org) before you visit. I've been told that the Zoo may need to limit how many visitors are here at the same time for health and safety reasons. But don't worry - after all of that effort, I'm not going anywhere!
Happy #InternationalSlothDay from your favorite sloth! Oh wait ... it was yesterday? It took me that long to write that? Well they should have really considered making it a two-day affair. How are all of the sloths on social media supposed to get posts out so quickly?!? I'm going to write someone a strongly worded letter.
