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 $5 and 100% of the proceeds from the Intermountain Eye Centers Sloth Bear Encounter go to the Zoo Boise Conservation Fund.

Payment is only accepted at the encounter station. Cash and check only.
