8 laziest animals on Earth

Pravrajya Suruchi

Sloth: The undisputed champion of laziness! Sloths spend most of their days hanging upside down from trees, moving very slowly. 

Koala: Koalas are known for their sleep habits, averaging 12 to 18 hours of sleep a day! 

Opossum: Opossums spend a significant portion of their days sleeping and conserve energy by lowering their body temperature when inactive. 

Giant Panda: To compensate for the low energy intake, giant pandas spend a large part of their day (around 10 hours) sleeping and lounging. 

Pythons: These large snakes are ambush predators. Unlike actively hunting prey, pythons conserve energy by waiting for their meals to come to them. 

Armadillo: Armadillos are known for their hard shells, but they're also quite lazy. 

Sea Cucumber: They lack complex brains or active lifestyles, embodying the motto "slow and steady." 

Hagfish: They have minimal movement and rely on their slime and sharp teeth to feed on dead or dying animals that sink to the ocean floor.
