Bristol Zoo shows baby sloth ahead of public unveiling
A baby sloth has been unveiled for the first time at Bristol Zoo, despite not yet being on show to the public.
Five-week-old Sidone, or Sid, is being cared for by keepers after her mother, Light Cap, became ill after birth.
The youngster, which is named after the sloth in the Ice Age movies, only weighed about 500g (1.1lb) when born and she is too small to be viewed.
Sid is a Linne's two-toed sloth and Bristol Zoo is part of a European breeding programme for the species.
Bristol Zoo has released pictures of the baby and have allowed television cameras in to film her for the first time.
