CTDL 215: Maybe all those sloth comparisons aren’t insults?

Rather than snoozing for more than 16 hours a day, as observed in captivity, sloths in the wild doze for less than 10 hours, research suggests.
Scientists caught sloths living in the rainforest of Panama and fitted them with a device that monitors sleep.
The findings, published in a Royal Society journal, may help shed light on human sleep disorders, they say.

Maybe not… I don’t guess they move much faster in the wild, they just sleep a bit less.
