    Web building spiders. They wait patiently for something to fly into the web.

    Angler fish. They use a lure to attract prey while patiently waiting, buried in the mud.

    Bobbit worms. They wait patiently for something to touch their jaws and then grab it.

    Vultures, everyone has seen the two setting on a limb with one saying "Patience hell, I'm gonna kill something ".

    I would say that this applies to all animals other than humans. Being inpatient is a human emotion and we should not give this emtion to other animals.

    I think also in general even if we were to use the term loosely with non-human animals that they have considerable patience compared to us.

    Animals that filter feed. They do not move and let food come to them. Sit and wait predators are also very patient. Horned frogs for example are sit and wait predators. They stay in one spot for a long time and wait for prey to approach them. Spiders are of course very patient. They are sit and wait predators.

    Pretty much all hunters. 

    I guess the sloth would be at the top. They’re so patient so get where they need to that mold grows on their fur.
