Life of a Sloth (video)

In this amusing and entertaining clip from the BBC’s Life of Mammals, David Attenborough looks at the life of a sloth. The sloth has adapted to the lack of nutrition in its diet of leaves by hanging around not doing very much at all. We even get to see one moving at high speed (it’s hard to notice the difference)!
