Video Gone Viral: Speedboat-Riding Sloth

sloth692AMAZON RAIN FOREST – And now, the latest entry in the ever-expanding collection of silly animal viral videos:  a sloth riding a speedboat.

The sloth — that species generally associated with its passiveness and complete lack of activity — had fallen from a tree in the Amazon and landed on the boat.

At first the sloth seemed disoriented and confused, but it soon settled down to simply enjoy the ride on the fast-moving boat — presumably faster than the slowpoke sloth had ever gone.

.The video was posted by YouTube user Patrick Verreth, and now it’s gone viral in a big way.
