Full disclosure: To keep his video feed PG-13 and to protect the privacy of Mr. and Mrs. Sloth, the creator of this video stops just short of showing sloth-on-sloth action. But you'll get the idea.

Mark Rosenthal, who also narrates this video, claims that it's rare to glimpse sloths breeding, and perhaps one of the reasons why is that it takes … sloths … a … long … time … to … do … anything. In fact, you might not even be able to tell what these two sloths have in mind if you didn't have a narrator explaining it to you.

When Colleen Clarke-Murphy's vet told her the news, she said: "Did I just hear you right?"

After an exam of her cat Mittens in October, it was determined that the feline had both female and male genitalia. The vet recommended that Mittens be assigned a male sex.

If shock was Clarke-Murphy's first feeling, compassion was a close second. Clarke-Murphy told Canada's CBC News that she plans do whatever it takes to ensure the cat is healthy, since the feline currently has bowel issues and problems urinating as a result of having both male and female sex organs.
