About This Quiz

Being a sloth is so much more than sleeping a lot and moving slower than a snail. It has a lot to do with those things, but there are other factors to consider. For example, do you eat a diet that is so devoid of nutrition that it provides almost no usable energy? Are you so uncoordinated that you should really come with a warning label for everyone's safety? How appealing does lounging on a raft out in the pool sound to you?

These questions get at the heart of whether or not you are truly sloth material. It's not easy to qualify for such distinction. Normally, it takes years of practice to master the art of binge-watching shows and limiting your physical activity to the absolute minimum. Most people feel the need to move around and take in some form of physical exercise once in a while, but perhaps you aren't like most people.

If you are the last person to get a joke, your day starts sometime after noon, and you consider watching paint dry to be an exciting activity, there's a good chance that you might just have what it takes to be considered "Totally a Sloth." Let's get headed over to the quiz.

Whenever you're ready.
