The 10 Slowest Animals In The World

We have discussed the fastest animals in the world, such as the eagle. So, do you know which of the 10 slowest animals in the world? In addition to the snails and turtles that are often hanged by people, do you know which animals are actually slow? Let’s get to know each other.

10. American Woodcock

The American woodcock is the slowest bird in the world. Although it travels much faster than other animals, it still maintains the slowest record of birds flying ever – 8 kilometers per hour.

9. Manatee

Manatees are marine mammals that are up to 4.0 meters in length and weigh up to 590 kilograms. The weight they move on the water is like a small fin-like a paddle, no wonder they walk so slowly.

8. Gila Monster 

The Gila is a cumbersome, slow-moving lizard. It can be up to 60 cm in size and usually weighs between 350 and 700 grams. The Gila lizard is the only venomous lizard native to the united states and one of two toxic lizards known in north America, but due to its slow movement, there is little threat to humans.

7. Seahorse

There are 54 species of the hippocampus, and the size of the hippocampus ranges from 1.5 to 35.5 cm. The hippocampus swims upright, but they swim very poorly. They are the slowest fish in the world, with a top speed of about 1.5 meters per hour.

6. Slug

In my opinion, the slugs are always like naked snails. Anyway, as you may have guessed, the movement of the slugs is very slow. The speed is so slow that their maximum recording speed is 0.3 km/h.

5. Koala Bear

Koala is a native of Australia. Like the sloth, they are very cute and slow. No hurries? The leaves on the tree are enough for them to enjoy.

4. Giant Tortoise

The giant tortoise is the slowest crawling animal in the world and one of the slowest animals in the world. But he has a life span of 190 years, so it is not in a hurry. In addition, if your weight reaches 300 kg, I believe your movements will slow down.

3. Starfish

This is incredible, but some starfish species move faster than sloths and snails. There are about 1,500 species of starfish, most of which cannot move quickly. The starfish moves at a speed of only 15 centimeters per minute, but the speed of the sand star can reach 2.8 meters per minute.

2. Sloth

The slowest animal in the world is also one of the most adorable animals. The sloth is so slow, that it is actually named after its slowness, as the meaning of sloth is laziness or sluggishness. If a sloth does decide to move, it can reach a top speed of 2 meters per minute, that’s 0.12 km/h.

1. Garden Snail

Not surprisingly, the garden snail is definitely the slowest animal in the world. = garden snail is also a type of land snail that moves at a maximum speed of 1.3 cm per second. This means that it takes 21 hours for a snail to move 1 kilometer. I think some plants grow faster than they are, really.
