Recently we had the opportunity to sneak peek at the newest residents of the Montana Zoo. It’s come to see lazy Winston!
He came in late 7 months and we talked to the CEO of ZooMontana, Jeff Ewelt to learn more about his newest inhabitants.
“Oh, my goodness, I’m glad to introduce you to sloth Winston. Everyone is very eager to meet this guy – and I’m so excited to introduce him to you, “Ewelt said.

Ewelt notes that one of the interesting things about Winston is that “the sloth is that they cannot cross the gas so they cannot hit their teeth or belching or anything. We must be very careful when this guy eats things such as broccoli or cabbage. . ”
Winston just liked the lurling at the Billings Zoo – upside down – what Ewelt told us is perfectly normal for the sloth.
He explained: “Yes. They are very well built to hang backwards. And it is interesting that their inner part is actually anchored to the upper part of the body so that they are not subject to diaphragm and suffocating themselves, “he explained. “But these guys will literally hang on trees from 15 to 20 hours a day to sleep smoothly [time]. ”
The sloth as Winston also has an ecosystem and actually moves slowly to the level of moths and algae that grow on them.
Ewelt said, “It is really camouflaged for them. “And you believe it or not, there is a moth known to live in their fur. It is for and receiving… These guys move not fast, and their self-defense is a draw or they can swim. So many times these guys will jump out of the trees and land down a river underneath and swim to freedom. But that disguise is important for the survival. ”
Ewelt added that even though the sloth ran slow on shallow, “but in the water, it works very efficiently.”
Hopefully the public will be able to meet Winston in late August but Ewelt said there were some delays in the preparation of the exhibit for the COVID-19 epidemic.
― “We are having some delays due to the Sloth A day without coffee is like just kidding I have no idea vintage retro shirt material shipping epidemic we need for his exhibits. But believe me, we want to take him out as soon as possible. Because I know how excited people are. And we work hard to make that happen as soon as possible, “he explained.
