In this post we will be talking about the top 10 slowest animals in the world. Some time ago, we posted an article about the top 10 fastest animals in the world, and here we will be posting is opposite which is the slowest animals in the world.
Curious to know the animals that made it into this list? Let’s ride on…
Not surprising, the garden snail is the world’s slowest moving animal. The well known garden snail is a species of land snail. It moves at a top speed of 1.3 centimeters per second, that’s less than a meter a minute (78 cm to be exact), or 47 meters (154 ft) an hour. This means that it will take a snail over 21 hours to move just one km (0.6 mile). I’ve seen plants grow faster than that, seriously… what a snail.
Definitely, it deserves a spot on our list of top 10 slowest animals in the world.
