There's a sanctuary in Wales for OAP sloths

Turns out, just like humans, sloths also need to go into retirement!

Folly Farm found in Pembrokeshire, Wales has made the decision to take in some sloth OAPs. Instead of taking on young breeding sloths, Folly Farm made the decision to home older sloths which have 'retired' from other zoos.

The first sloth to be homed was a two toed sloth called Tuppee who is now at the grand old age of 24. Tuppee was joined by Lightcap from Bristol Zoo, who is 34. Sloths aren't sociable creatures but are known to get more friendly to each other as they age.
