MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Welcome to Sloth Valley, where you can come face-to-face with one of the world’s most fascinating creatures.

Ripley’s Aquarium of Myrtle Beach is home to a pair of two-toed sloths, Rico and Cleo.

Linnaeus’s two-toed sloths are typically larger than their three-toed cousins and are also known as “unau,” said to come from the Tupí word for slow or lazy.
