SPIDERS:  They can sit motionless on their web (couch) for weeks on end, and never go to the gym, but still move with blinding, overpowering speed and strength when the need arises.

You?

    Animals live lives of deceptively cruel hardship. Even domestic animals. To be without hands would be awful. Even the birds freedom of flight lacks the ability to assert their will to direct environmental change.

    Hard pass for me.

    Question was "wish you had traits of" not be a specific animal.
    My desire would be to be as fast as a Jaguar and strong as a Rhino. (Not RINO)

    This might be fun but I draw the line at the yellow jumpsuit. 😁

    Hmmm......The eyes of an eagle for daytime, the vision of an Owl for nightime, the agility of a cat...not one of your pissy little domestic couch potatoes but a real cat like a Jaguar along with its speed.....That will do to start with............ 
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    Sloths aren't sleepy and slow...they just don't give a damn.
