Three-toed sloth Report Abuse
It would take a sloth nearly a month to walk one mile. Their feet are designed for hanging from trees, not for walking.

humans aren't that fast. But they're smart enough to invent cars
Added 1 year ago by guest, -1 points Vote + to improve this comment's ranking Vote - to decrease this comment's ranking
humans are not slow... just think about it, if a human was to be slow they would act slow. but what this site is meaning that the animals that are SLOW. they don't have to reduce their speed, its natural. but we, humans have to reduce our speed since we are not naturally made to be slow. we are very lucky not to be slow otherwise it would be hard for us to move/get to places (in time).

Because of the humming bird's short wingspan it can move its wings very fast which almost makes it the fastest bird.
Added 3 years ago by guest, -1 points Vote + to improve this comment's ranking Vote - to decrease this comment's ranking
You can't have a negative speed. It is physically impossible without time travel, which is currently impossible. They travel backwards at a speed of 28 miles an hour.
