Sloth Bear Encounter SPONSORED BY

Open daily at 10:30am – 11:30am*

Do you know that a sloth bear’s favorite treats are bugs? In the wild, sloth bears are expert ant and termite eaters. Here’s your chance to feed one of the Zoo Boise sloth bears some mealworms through a special feeding tube in the exhibit. The Sloth Bear Encounter is open daily from 10:30am – 11:30am and up to 25 visitors may participate.

At the Sloth Bear Encounter, you’ll receive mealworms for only $3 and 100% of the proceeds from the Intermountain Eye Centers Sloth Bear Encounter go to the Zoo Boise Conservation Fund.

The Sloth Bear Encounter is generously sponsored by Intermountain Eye Centers.
