If you've ever wanted to see a sloth up close, one is coming to New York.

The Foundation for Animal Rescue and Education is teaming up with Little Ray's Nature Centers and ZooAmerica to bring the first annual Natural History Exhibition. It'll be held in Albany February 9th and 10th.

The 12,000 square foot interactive, educational exhibit features 30 live animals including a Sloth, Armadillo, Owls, Falcon, Alligator, Hawk, Snakes, Tarantulas, Tortoises, Bunnies, Ferrets, and much more.

There will be 2 highly interactive 30-minute educational programs that will rotate 15 minutes apart each day and lots of staff with animals out for people to interact with in a family-friendly, hands-on environment. You'll need a few hour to see and do everything the Exhibition has to offer.
