A pair of sloths were caught kissing on camera in their first encounter.
Female Flo arrived at Dudley Zoo last month to accompany male sloth Reggie and footage of the pair's first meeting shows them locking lips.
Zookeeper Richard Brown said: ''Flo's arrival is fantastic news for the zoo. It's been a species we've wanted for a long time and to be in a breeding position with a pair of sloths is brilliant.''
Flo has gradually been introduced to Reggie since her arrivals as part of a breeding programme and the pair were able to ''see each other through the enclosure's mesh'', according to Richard.
