Alex Dillon, a 24-year-old Bostonian who became known as “Sloth Girl” after dressing up in a full-body sloth costume on “The Bachelor,” came face-to-face with her animal counterpart at the Franklin Park Zoo on Thursday, Jan. 24.
Dillon had a chance to visit with Molasses, a Linne’s two-toed sloth that was born at Zoo New England’s Stone Zoo in November 2016.
“This beautiful creature’s name is Mo, and I am officially in love….,” Dillon wrote on Instagram after meeting the sloth. “Big thank you to @zoonewengland for this meet and greet opportunity! I had a blast and learned a ton of sloth fun facts that I will use for future conversational ice breakers.”
Maybe Dillon and Molasses will be fast friends after all.
