#Koala - 18–22 Hours/Day

        Koalas (often called koala "bears," even though they are marsupials) live in Eastern and Southeastern Australia. They rely on the eucalyptus forests in these regions for both their habitat and predominant food source.  

#Sloth - 15-20 Hours/Day

       These soporific tree-dwellers lounge around in the tropical rainforests of Central and South America. When it is time to rise and shine (which is not very often), they slowly cover about 40 yards throughout the day in search of food.  

#Little Brown Bat - 19.9 Hours/Day

    Little brown bats are spread across North America, from the Pacific to Atlantic Coasts, and all the way from Alaska down to some parts of Mexico. Wherever they are on the continent, these compact nocturnal creatures typically stick to forested areas near lakes and rivers. 

#Giant Armadillo - 18.1 Hours/Day

  The Giant armadillo roams throughout large parts of Northern/Central South America, seeking anywhere that has abundant termites. These nocturnal animals are easily recognizable by their hard outer coverings and prominent central claw. 

#Python - 18 Hours/Day

 These bulky, nonvenomous snakes are native to Asia, Africa, and Oceania, though they have also become invasive in the West, particularly in Florida's Everglades. There are 41 species within the Pythonidae family, of which the ball python is perhaps the sleepiest. 

#Owl Monkey - 17 Hours/Day

 The owl monkey (or "night monkey") can be found scattered throughout the forests of Panama and parts of South America and is classified accordingly as either a Northern or Southern night monkey. These primates live in family groups and can be heard calling out to each other using their distinctive vocalizations (typically to signal potential threats). 

#Tiger - 15.8 Hours/Day

 The iconic tiger is the largest of the big cats in Asia. Since 2017, there have been two recognized subspecies: the continental (Panthera tigris tigris), and the Sundra (Panthera tigris sondaica). Combined, they can be found across India, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Russia, China, and some Southeast Asian countries
