1,100 yards per minute is about 250 times as fast as a Sloth
In other words, the speed of a Sloth is 0.004 times that amount.
(for Brown-throated three-toed sloth, Bradypus variegatus)
The three-toed sloth moves along the ground at an average speed of 4.40 yards per minute. Long thought to be lengthy sleepers, a 2008 study concluded that sloths sleep an average of only 9.6 hours per day.
