Meet Aspen. He has become so popular that he has inspired an official “Sloth Weekend” where larger groups can visit him in person and view other rainforest animals. At the Downtown Aquarium’s third Sloth Weekend Feb. 24-25, which is free with admission, the first 100 people in line will get to see Aspen in a training session, take pictures with him and get lots of sloth facts from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
