This Horny Sloth Will Mend Your Broken Heart

So, as far as we were concerned, 2016 was going down in history as the year that true love died.

But then Sir David Attenborough - AKA The Soothing Voice Of Reason - came to our rescue and introduced us to this studly little sloth, who we're going to call Boris from here on out. 

Boris, like most of us at 3am on a Saturday night, heard mating calls from across the room/ jungle and realised that he had a potential lady friend, ready and waiting. 

Only problem? There was a whole frickin' body of water in the way.

There's only a couple hundred pygmy three-toed sloths left in the world, so, faced with the threat of extinction and/ or not getting laid, Boris pulled a total Michael Phelps and breaststroked his way to the other side.

Look at his little doggy-paddle! Take note, ladies and gents, THAT is romance.

SPOILER ALERT: Turns out the object of Boris' affections has just given birth to a baby sloth and won't be ready to get ~busy~ for another six months. 

But then, just as he's about to call it a night and slope off to find a kebab, there's a plot twist! 

Another female calls! Boris is still in with a chance.

The heartwarming clip is snipped from Planet Earth 2, the latest David Attenborough-narrated nature series, which has been 10 years in the making. 

Have a go at the full video above, and just try not to smile. 

Boris, we love you.
