John Orozco, a 19-year-old gymnast from the Bronx, stopped by the Bronx Zoo Friday after returning from London.

Staff at the zoo gave him a tour, during which Orozco posed with a sloth “practicing a few moves on the zoo’s version of a high bar,” according to the zoo.

Orozco did not earn a medal in his events this Olympics, coming in eighth in men’s individual all-around. He was also part of the U.S. men’s team, which came in fifth.
