Get sleepy like a sloth at The Green Planet

Calling all sloth enthusiasts! In honor of International Sloth Day, The Green Planet, the region’s first standalone educational and recreational bio-dome developed by Meraas and located in City Walk, will be offering their little guests a unique opportunity to meet their adorable tree-dwelling residents on October 20th.
 
 
Hosted by a biologist, four intimate sessions will be held throughout the day to honor the slow-moving leaf-eating mammals educating guests on their importance to the eco-system as well as offering them the chance to interact with the sloths. To be selected for these sessions, all guests need to do is come dressed in their pajamas channeling their inner sleepy sloths and be prepared to have some fun!
 
 
 
For those who don’t dare leave the house in PJ’s, The Green Planet will also be hosting sloth themed DIY arts and crafts activities for children held between 11am-5pm, kids will be able to make sloth masks and get crafty with other arty projects. 
 
 
 
International Sloth Day is an annual commemoration celebrated on October 20th every year to raise awareness about the natural habitat and life cycle of the sloth. Sloths are extremely important to the ecosystem as these cute mammals host habitats of their own, supporting moths, beetles, cockroaches, fungi and algae in their fur and on their skin. Some of these organisms are even endemic to the sloth—meaning they occur only on a sloth, and nowhere else!
 
 
Here’s a look at other top 7 interesting facts about sloths that you might not know about: 
 
 
Sloths have a very sloth digestive system with a four-part stomach. It can take them up to a month to fully digest a meal.
Sloths are regularly found with a green algae on them that also helps them camouflage with the trees they sleep in.
 
 
An adult sloth can extend their tongue up to 10 inches out of their mouth.
Sloths sleep an average of 10-15 hours per day.
 
 
Natural predators of sloths include eagles, snakes and jaguars
A sloth’s closest genetic relative is an ant eater or an armadillo
Sloths are solitary animals. They have claws up to 4 inches long that they use to hold onto branches.
 
 
The Green Planet was launched in September 2016 with the aim of transporting family and friends into the very heart of a tropical forest and giving them a striking glimpse of the inner workings of such an ecosystem. 
The Green Planet has been awarded “Best Kids Edutainment Venue” by Time Out Dubai Kids and has been nominated as “Best Family Theme Park” by Family Traveller.
