Stone Zoo's two-toed sloth family – Nero, Lunesta and Siesta.

This week, Zoo New England launched new #ZooToYou Facebook Live social media programming on Franklin Park Zoo and Stone Zoo’s Facebook pages to give families an inside look at the animals that call the zoo home, while also teaching fun facts about the different critters and the care they receive. 

Parents and kids are invited to tune in each day at 1:30 p.m. for a mix of Facebook Live, videos, activities and more.Black bears, Smoky and Bubba, the adorable fennec fox, Ariel, and a two-toed sloth family are among the "guests" making appearances. 

Families are also invited to check out the Kids’ Corner on Zoo New England’s website, where the Zoo is continuing to provide fresh content so kids can continue learning, exploring and creating at home. Create your own animal masks, draw all types of animals with dot-to-dot illustrations, or learn something new like how to make your own compost pile! A full list of activities can be found here:
