GIF animation - produces a massive size on publish

Hi designers, I have inserted a gif animation in a slide. The storyline slide duration is 5sec. The gif file has 270 frames - loop forever. The gif file size is 2.6 MB. But on publishing, the published zip file size is massive. So I located the gif file in the published folder and it's about 60MB. Also the quality of the animation was downgraded quite a lot.

As a workaround, I replaced the published gif file with the original one. But I need to do this each time I publish it.

Has anyone come across this issue?

Thanks,

Shamil
