LIVE - Romeo the Sloth

VIP SLOTH ENCOUNTER

Come hang out with our resident two-toed sloth, Romeo, for a once-in-a-lifetime encounter at the Connecticut Science Center! You will create unforgettable memories as you and up to three friends will have the unique opportunity to meet Romeo up close. Each encounter session will last approximately 30 minutes as you learn about these remarkable creatures from our educational experts and then go inside Romeo’s enclosure, where you can feed him (if he is hungry). And before you go, take all the photos and selfies you want to remember your experience and, of course, brag to all your friends!
