Last at the finish line, but first in our hearts. These creatures seem to live pretty simple lives, one that many humans would envy.
Could the sloth be your unrealized spirit animal? Here are some reasons that might convince you to say yes.
#1. Your facial reactions are pretty limited.
Just like the sloth, you’ve got that Mona Lisa smile down.
#2. You’re determined to eat, no matter how slow and tired you are.
Fact: Sloths have large four-chambered stomachs that are responsible for about 20-30% of their body weight. Kind of like you.
#3. You’re adorable, no matter what you’re doing.
Sloths are the laziest animals in the universe, yet they still manage to make every animal lover squeal with excitement.
#4. You sleep more hours than you should.
In the wild, sloths sleep for about 9 hours a day, while those held captive can doze off for 15 to 20 hours.
#5. You’re not as motivated as the rest of society to shower.
Although let’s hope you’re not growing algae on your skin, as well. Sloths can use the camouflage excuse, but you can’t (or shouldn’t).
#6. You could be a deadly threat… if you tried.
But ehhh, naps are nice too.
#7. You’re pretty much just chillin’ all the time.
Sloths are the masters of mellow.
#8. You feel as though you could function much better as a human being if everything just slowed the f*ck down.
“Yeah sure, I’ll get to that… later.”
#9. Your preferred method of getting someone’s attention is just to scream.
Fact: When looking for a mate, female sloths let out a bloodcurdling scream that can be heard up to 700 meters away. If that’s not romance, then we don’t know what is.
#10. You basically do nothing, and you’re still alive.
Staying alive is damn hard, give yourself a pat on the back!
