• Sloths can swim three times faster
than they can walk on land. And
because of their ability to slow their
heart rates to one-third its normal
rate, they can also hold their breath
for a whopping 40 minutes under
water.

    • How do they know how long they can stay under water? Did they drown a bunch of them and made an average of it?

    • There was a prehistoric sloth that lived underwater and used its claws to pull itself along the ocean floor and eat seaweed. It was actually pretty big. Sloths lives on land first, then evolved to go underwater, and then evolved again to go back on land. Weird.

    • Ok isn't that a death sentence though sloth stomachs are very slow to digesting there food and there has been cases where a sloth would die of exhaustin just because they filled there stomach so basically that sloth in the water is fighting for it's life trying to get out of the water but wants it
