Sloths Can Hold Their Breath for 40 Minutes

I am aware sloths are monsters, but damn it do I love them.

Did ya know that sloths can hold their breath for 40 minutes?

Via The Dodo:

Using their patented sloth-y version of doggy paddle, they move through water up to three times faster than they move on land. They can slow their heart rate to one-third of its normal pace, allowing sloths to hold their breath underwater for up to 40 minutes.
