The workers at a Peruvian gas pipeline unit recently welcomed a new crewmember. Surprisingly, the new unofficial recruit to join the workforce is a sloth who was seen making an effort to turn a valve. The workers at the unit captured a video of the sloth in action during late June.

The video is quite funny, as you can see the sloth hanging from a guard rail by its feet and using its arms to pull on the large valve. The sloth can also be seen trying to get into a comfortable position so that it can perform its task efficiently. However, it did manage to turn the wheel repeatedly. Actually, the sloth was trying to get a steady handhold, which at the time looked as if it was attempting to turn the wheel.

However, the new worker was very slow with its actions. The person capturing the sloth rotating the wheel slowly had to be very patient. Nontheless the workers had a great time enjoying this rare sight. They were laughing while watching the action and said that they had no choice because they are not allowed to disturb wildlife as per the company policy of the gas pipeline unit in the Peruvian Amazon.

Though the sloth was extremely slow in completing his task, he does not have to fear for his job.
