SAN DIEGO (CBS) - Friday, at the San Diego Zoo, we were able to meet Xena the sloth, Nikki and Fred the giraffes, and a cute koala ambassador.
Xena, is a three-year-old sloth, who spends most of her day sleeping. As a nocturnal animal, she spends her nights looking for food. Xena is a two-toed sloth and her brown coat blends into the trees, which helps protect her from predators.
Nikki and Fred are 19 and three-years-old. They love to be fed giraffe biscuits, which consists of hay and leaves. Zoo guests are able to feed these giant animals, for a fee. That money goes to the Wildlife Conservation.
Lastly, Zoo Day consisted of meeting the koala ambassador. Koala's are also a nocturnal marsupial and sleep 18 to 20 hours a day. The average koala lives to be about 15 years old in conservation. This koala ambassador is very cuddly, which makes him set apart from other koalas in the zoo.
