The Aquarium’s Fridays After Five Just Got Cuter

Baby Sloth

catch of the day fish (2)If you think you’ve seen everything the National Aquarium has to offer, you’re clearly not following the baby sloth as closely as you should be. Baby Scout (pictured above) has finally started to break away from mama Ivy. And he’s even experimenting with hanging upside down—which we assume he’ll get pretty good at, since that’s kind of the main skill a sloth needs to have. And since he’s now gaining just a tiny bit of independence, it’s the perfect time to take advantage of the aquarium’s Fridays After Five deal—when admission is only $12, and you can get in all the sloth ogling you can take.

If you’re more of a literalist and furry mammals aren’t the reason you visit the aquarium—fair enough. Skip the sloths and check out the 19 rescued sea turtles currently being rehabilitated by the aquarium. Or get the lowdown on the Sandbar Shark—the most common shark found in the Chesapeake. There’s so much to see and learn, that we’re sure you’ll be surprised by something new—as long as you’re able to tear yourself away from the baby sloth long enough.
