Isle Of Wight Amazon World Zoo is mourning the passing of its “beautiful” two-toed sloth, Solarna.

Solarna had been a member of the zoo’s animal family since 2003, living with his mate Amber for 15 years, with whom he had 5 babies.

In Facebook post the Zoo said:

“It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of a much loved member of our animal family. Solarna our beautiful male Two-toed Sloth has sadly died. Solarna came to the zoo in 2003 and every keeper that had the pleasure to know him fell in love straight away. Solarna is missed greatly by Amber and all of his keepers that are privileged to have worked alongside him.”
