We know a lot of our readers like to take their pets on board, but a sloth? This boat video is a first for us

Now we know quite a few dogs that are partial to a spot of cruising, and we’ve even come across the odd cat, but this boat video of a sloth clearing enjoying his fur blowing in the wind as the boat motors along, really took us by surprise.

Perhaps he was just hitching a ride to avoid having to use up any more energy than is absolutely necessary, such is the idle nature of the sloth.
