Here we present a lovely collection of animals doing what they love most, having a snooze!
See lions, dogs, seals, gorillas, otters, and more below cuddling their loved ones and in their cutest poses… Sleeping.
Our favorite, the male lion, sleeps on the floor with his arm on a lioness, like they’re spooning.
Lions often sleep during the day because they hunt at night. They also like to make the most of the warmth of the ground.
This polar bear has fallen asleep in a strange position on the sea ice. Polar bears usually sleep about 8 hours a day, just like humans.
Though they don’t have a pattern like us, and instead, they sleep whenever they feel like it.
Lions are often found sleeping in/on trees. Did you know male lions sleep up to 20 hours a day!
A bulldog pup, when they’re young, can sleep pretty much all day! Exploring a new world is exhausting work!
Seals breathe oxygen, but they live in the sea. So they sleep in a position known as ‘bottling,’ meaning that only their heads are above the water while their bodies are submerged in the water.
Did you know that they only sleep with half of their brain at a time? Like most mammals, this is to maintain their vigilance for potential dangers.
You may have seen this before. Sea otters place both hands on their chests when they sleep to help them balance.
A tanned owl sleeping in a tree hollow, very camouflaged!
A brave squirrel checks a leopard sleeping on a tree branch. Like lions, these big cats hunt at night so sleep during the day.
A sleeping gorilla in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in southwestern Uganda. Gorillas, which make their beds on the jungle floor, unlike many other primates, sleep about 12 hours a day.
Quite possibly the cutest solo sleeping position we’ve ever seen. Gorillas sleep about 12 hours a day on the forest floor.
A lynx kitten sleeping in a fun pose in a tree and a snowy owl.
Black bears cuddle as they sleep inside a tree.
Now, this is a rare sight, a beagle dog and two cats cuddling together.
