45 miles per second is about 1,000,000 times as fast as a Sloth
In other words, it's 1,100,000 times the speed of a Sloth, and the speed of a Sloth is 0.000000910 times that amount.
(for Brown-throated three-toed sloth, Bradypus variegatus)
The three-toed sloth moves along the ground at an average speed of 0.0000410 miles per second. Long thought to be lengthy sleepers, a 2008 study concluded that sloths sleep an average of only 9.6 hours per day.
