Sloth Bear Encounter SPONSORED BY

Open daily at 2:30pm – 3:00pm*

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 a sloth bear some mealworms through a special feeding tube in the exhibit. The Sloth Bear Encounter is open daily 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.
