Why does gif images take forever to load?

I have an image element with gif uploaded in it.
When using images (jpg, svg, etc) with image element loads pretty fast but using gif takes forever to load.
Am I doing something wrong?

No that’s normal
GIFs are usually heavier files than regular jpegs, especially the animated ones
A higher number of frames in the GIF leads to a longer load time

You could try possibly reducing the number of frames in the gif via an online tool or API
