Tallinn Zoo has launched a competition to name its newest resident – a one-year-old female sloth. You can suggest a name by replying to Tallinn’s Zoo’s Facebook post.
Tallinn Zoo’s newest resident – a one-year-old female two-toed sloth – has arrived in Estonia, but she is missing one vital thing, a name. For this reason, Tallinn Zoo has launched a competition to name her on its Facebook page.
In their Facebook post, Tallinn Zoo also stated that the young sloth arrived from Schönbrunn Zoo in Austria and that her parents were named Einstein and Baba, as a little extra inspiration.
In less than a day, they have already received over 500 name suggestions for her, from Flash to Lazy Liisu. To make your suggestion, simply go to the Tallinn Zoo Facebook page and respond to the post.
