What It's Like to be Chased by a Sloth

Oh dear! How will you ever escape a sloth who is determined to chase you down? There's a reason these animals were named after the laziest of the seven deadly sins. While these young guys at the Sloth Sanctuary of Costa Rica (yeah, there are several different animals in this compilation) look to be the fastest sloths in the whole compound, they are still pretty slow. It's a good thing they aren't predators, or they would have gone extinct long ago. Even a dramatic movie soundtrack wouldn't have helped them.

The Kid Should See This tells us more about the two kinds of sloths at the sanctuary, Bradypus variegatus, or the three-toed sloth, and Choloepus hoffmanni, or the two-toes sloth. -via Nag on the Lake ā€‹
