Swimming Sloth

(YouTube link)

I didn’t know sloths could swim, but according to Wikipedia, most mammals can swim by instinct if they need to. This little guy does a pretty good job, although slowly as you would expect. The video was recorded near Isla Cristobal in Panama. -via Arbroath

Perfect example of why the world generally has negative stereotypes of Americans.

John Lennon said it best... "Let it be".

An over-moneyed "big ugly dumb North American" who is "out boating" sees a native animal doing what it is supposed to do, and has to molest it.

Look, but don't touch.

It takes sloths an inordinately long time to drown because of their slow metabolisms. They are actually really good swimmers, it just takes them long time to get where they are going. (Thank you Animal Planet!)
