adopt a sloth

Drusillas is a family-run business founded in 1925 when Captain Ann bought a derelict farm and 20 acres of land and opened the cottage to sell teas to passing motorists. He named the tea rooms after his first wife Drusilla.

Today, Drusillas is widely regarded as the best small zoo in the country with a great range of exotic animals and an emphasis on education. There are so many things to do and learn and their interactive displays are all designed to bring learning to life. The zoo has two enclosures which are home to a number of sloths – Halina, Sophocles, Flash and Gordon – where they eat their favourite foods and sleep most of the day!

Four of you lucky people can win the chance to adopt (and come along to visit) your very own real sloth. These four beauties, Halina, Sophocles, Flash and Gordon would love to be adopted. To enter, all you need to do is buy any of our eve goodies between 20.12.23 and 09.01.24.

meet the sloths


Flash is 7 years old, she sadly lost her Mum at just a few weeks old and was hand reared by Drusillas’ keepers, Gemma and Mark. Flash is crepuscular, meaning she’s most active at night and likes to snooze in the day time.


This fabulous fellow is 8 years old. He came to Drusillas from Amersfoort Zoo in the Netherlands. He loves eating his green beans and tipped the scales at whopping 6.2 kilos at his last weigh in. Wowzers!


Beautiful Halina is 6 years old and came to Drusillas’ from Nordhorn Zoo in Germany. As well as looking after baby Echo, you can often spot her climbing the ropes in Drusillas’ walkthrough enclosure. Her favourite food is sweet potato.


The elder statesman of the sloth gang, Sophocles is 14 years young! He came to Drusillas from Amazon World on the Isle of Wight. He’s still spritely and loves climbing the walkthrough enclosure. Courgettes are his favourite.
