8 of the Most Laziest Animals

By Manish Choudhary

1

Koala

Koalas move slowly and sleep a lot, up to 20 hours a day.

2

Sloth 

Sloths move super slowly, hang upside down in trees, and can even grow algae on their fur.

3

Opossum 

Night-loving opossums chill in trees, appearing lazy during the day with their slow metabolism.

4

Hippopotamus 

Hippos, despite their size, spend a lot of time in water to support their massive bodies.

5

Python 

Pythons, large constrictor snakes, are ambush predators that spend much time waiting for prey to approach.

6

Echidna 

Echidnas, egg-laying mammals, have a low metabolism and can enter a state of torpor with decreased activity.

7

Giant Panda 

Giant pandas eat bamboo, low in nutrients and hard to digest, requiring much energy. To save energy, they rest and sleep a lot.

8

Nurse Shark 

Nurse sharks are slow and rest on the ocean floor, less active than other sharks.
