Turns out sloths are pretty good swimmers

At least when they are looking for some sweet, slow lovin'. BBC Earth served up this charming video of a sloth swimming in a shallow waterway in search of a ladyfriend. Turns out sloths get a little spring in their step when climbing if there's a chance for a romantic interlude in the trees. The clip is a nice palate-cleanser after the harrowing "baby iguana vs. a few dozen snakes" clip that made the rounds earlier this week.

Maybe the Benny Hill version of Baby Iguana vs. Snake Army will stop the nightmares?
