Did You Know? Sloths are great swimmers!
Sure, you think sloths are cute, but did you know that we can swim? Especially when we’re motivated, like this sloth who is swimming to find a mate.
Unfortunately, he finds when he gets there that she has a ( quite adorable) baby. Sadly, he just wants a mate and isn’t looking to be a baby daddy.
But BBC got some incredible footage for BBC Earth II of one of my brethren swimming that shows we can really move when we want. Additionally, we sloths can slow our heart rate and hold our breath for up to 40 minutes underwater. Take that, Tom Sietas!
