Three Toed Sloth Swimming
While sloths may be slow and cumbersome on land, they transform immediately upon entering the water. Interestingly, sloths are highly adapted to spending time underwater.

This BBC video clip is being freely broadcasted for purely educational purposes. Film narrated by David Attenborough.

I'd never once thought of using the word graceful to describe a sloth, but this video definitely opened my eyes lol.
