Today, your task as an Internet user and Baltimore lover is naming a baby sloth.
The new baby sloth at the National Aquarium in the Inner Harbor is the offspring of Ivy, one of four baby sloths making up the aquarium’s “Upland Tropical Rain Forest” exhibit. And it needs a name.

Through Nov. 1, the aquarium is accepting ideas for names through its online submission form. A panel of National Aquarium staff will choose four names from all the submissions, and the public can vote on a sloth name from Nov. 2 through Nov. 15.
Name Ivy’s new baby sloth here.
The aquarium is also taking name suggestions through Facebook and Twitter, says Nabila Chami, the social media and public relations coordinator at the National Aquarium. As of now, Chami said in an e-mail, the naming contest appears to be a toss-up between Toby and Iris, even though the aquarium has yet to determine the baby sloth’s gender.
