Are there personal viewings allowed of your Sloth? May a visitor pay a fee to see it personally with a zoo keeper?
I have no idea. I'd call Como Park Zoo directly.
Sadly I do not know, as you walk into the rain forest part of the zoo there is a big tree sitting in the middle of the pathway towards the exit. As you walk out you'll see the sloth just sleeping up there, something you'll catch it climbing slowly up the branches.
I believe if you do want to get a chance to get up close you'll need to talk to customer service in regards to your request. Good luck!
A sloth is usually visible in a tree in the Tropical Rainforest exhibit near the entrance - there's no fence or anything separating visitors from the tree, so you can usually get a pretty good look (although definitely not close enough to touch or anything). There's usually another sloth in with the primates as well, but that one is separated by glass.
