The sloth is considered to be one of the slowest moving animals in the world. They move from place to place at a slow rate. They can also slow down their breathing and heartrate. They can also slow down other bodily functions as well. However, even though the sloths are known for their slow nature, they also can be fast when they want to. Sloths are actually fast swimmers.
They can swim over 40 miles per hour in certain situations. They have strong and sharp claws for digging which they use to get their food from the ground or from trees. Also, sloths are known for eating ants and other bugs. They are also slow at waste removal from their bodies. They urinate only about once every seven days.
