Full disclosure: To keep his video feed PG-13 and to protect the privacy of Mr. and Mrs. Sloth, the creator of this video stops just short of showing sloth-on-sloth action. But you’ll get the idea.
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.
