VIDEO: Will the sloth sink or swim?
And not just from above, oh no. This video shows the lanky-limbed mammal in an NBC-Olympics-Michael-Phelps-underwater camera angle.
Well, Phelps might not be the first thing that comes to mind in this video. Sasha, the three-toed tree climber, isn’t going to break any speed records. But she’s surprisingly adept, even elegant, in the water. The sloth is like a water ninja, stealthy making her way across the pool with little more than a ripple in the water.
One has to wonder though, what would have happened if the Brandypus couldn’t float?
The Limón-based Sloth Sanctuary is also the subject of an Animal Planet reality show, “Meet the Sloths.”
