I recall reading in one of naturlist Gerald Durrell’s (brother of novelist Lawrence Durrell) books his account of trying to transport a sloth to a zoo, and finding that the normally slow animal had lightning speed with its claws when upset.
They may be sloths, but they are not pacifists.
How apropos: the link loads slowly.
“…sloths that move quite quickly under certain circumstances” I think I saw that video! They move fast when they are chased by Samurai, right? Or was it Ninjas?
When launched from a catapult.
They also love heavy metal.
And Bud Light.
And eat cocaine off America’s gravestone
