They were going to make a movie about sloth constipation.

But it never came out.

I guess this proves that the so-called "pain of Childbirth" is just a myth.

The act of pooping occurs on the forest floor, which can be a dangerous place for sloths as predators lurk. About half of sloth fatalities occur when they are doing this ritual.


And I thought, more than once, if I didn't poop, I'd die. Apparently sloths have this actually happen sometimes.

Especially dangerous for a male sloth if he mentions this in front of a female sloth.


4 out of 5 sloths agreed when surveyed.

I must be a sloth.
