Sloths Arrive at Ararat Ridge Zoo at the Ark Encounter

We have some new residents at Ararat Ridge Zoo, our zoo at the Ark Encounter. We have a wide variety of animals, including Tibetan yaks, kangaroos (and even a kangaroo walk-through so guests can interact with these remarkable creatures), camels, llamas, ostriches, emus, and more. Well, some much-anticipated arrivals have now made their appearance and are on display for our guests to enjoy . . . Hoffmann's Sloths (Choloepus hoffmanni)!

  • Sloth Drinking
  • Sloth Face
  • Sloth Hanging
  • Sloth Sitting

Other zoos have the same animals, but the Ark Encounter offers teaching from the foundation of God’s Word!

As you can see, the sloths are very cute and are sure to be popular with guests of all ages. Educational signage around that enclosure will teach visitors about these incredible creatures through the lens of a biblical worldview, pointing them to the one who created all things. Other zoos have the same animals, but the Ark Encounter offers teaching from the foundation of God’s Word! It’s a great place for families to enjoy and learn. And this year, we will begin live animal programs at our new animal actors stage located in the Ararat Ridge Zoo.

I encourage you to make plans to visit the Ark Encounter. We’re south of Cincinnati and right off I-75 (at exit 154). Kids ten and under enjoy free admission for 2020 (with the purchase of one adult ticket), so it’s a great year to come with the whole family! Visit ArkEncounter.com to plan your visit.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
Ken
