Your pet dog is not as lazy as you think, especially when compared to these laziest animals in the world.

All animals are lazy, but some species are more "slothful" than others, sleeping for more than 10 hours in a day.

That's why they're viewed as the laziest animals on the planet.

10. Giant Panda

Sleeps for: 10 hours a day

Pandas tend to do two things with their day: Sleep and Forage.

After a long day of finding and feasting on bamboo, a giant panda loves to climb up into its favorite tree and sleep.

9. Spiny Anteater

Sleeps for: 12 hours a day

Although spiny anteaters aren't as lazy as sloths, they are very slow-moving animals.

Spiny anteaters, also known as echidnas, are generally solitary creatures and avoid the heat of the sun during the day. Perhaps that's why they sleep so much.

8. Squirrel

Sleeps for: 14 hours a day

Mang of us don't that this agile animal has its lazy side.

Squirrels love to sleep because their diet is rich in carbohydrates, protein and fat.

These furry creatures usually sleep in nests made of twigs and leaves filled with fur, feathers or other soft material they collect from the ground.
