Mark Rosenthal, who also narrates this video, claims that it’s rare to glimpse sloths breeding, and perhaps one of the reasons why is that it takes sloths a long time to do anything. In fact, you might not even be able to tell what these two sloths have in mind if you didn’t have a narrator explaining it to you.
Speaking to National Geographic, Rosenthal filled in the remaining blank, describing it as “upside-down,” and adding “it didn’t last very long.”
Rosenthal’s website for his exotic animal nonprofit, Animal Magic, has a theme song that’s almost as spectacular as sloth lovemaking. Check it out.
