We have collected an amazing gallery where we find the likes of a cuddling lion couple or gorillas, dogs, and otters sleeping in cute positions.
The work of animals is to hunt and gather food for their family and also to reproduce and maintain their population. The animals have busy routines and need a proper rest schedule amidst the tiring lifestyles. They tend to sleep for hours in order to gain energy for their next hunt.
Photographers know about these routines after stalking such animals for months and when the time arises, they are ready with their cameras. We will show you all the pictures that have captured our attention and where these animals look like cute little pets even though they might be ferocious.
The Cuddling Lion Couple
Lions are nocturnal animals as they hunt during the night. You can find lions sleeping during the day. This time is particularly chosen by these massive cats to make use of the warm soil. The soil is warm due to the direct heat of the sun and the lions choose to rest on their warm mattresses.
The favorite picture of the netizens shows a cuddling lion couple. The male and female cats were lying on the floor and enjoying their sunbath. It looks as if the lion is spooning with his lioness with his hand over her body.

Sleeping Polar Bear
Polar bears are massive creatures but have a sleeping pattern just like humans. They sleep for 8 hours a day and obtain their necessary rest.
This bear was found to be sleeping in a weird and funny position on the surface of the ice. Polar bears do now have a particular time to sleep and choose to sleep whenever it is convenient to them.
This looks like a scene straight from Cartoon Network!!
Sleeping Bull Dog
Another picture that caused a stir like the cuddling lion couple, as a baby bulldog.
Bulldogs are very inquisitive and explore their homes properly when they are a pup. They love to look around and poke at things that they have no idea about. After exploring everything in their homes you can find them sleeping where ever they feel the comfort and warmth.
The bulldog pup was found to be sleeping in a peculiar position on its owners’ sofa. It must be so tired after working hard like Columbus.
A ‘Bottling’ Seal
Seals are marine creatures that spend most of their lives in water but they breathe in air. To gain access to the oxygen, they come to their surface to take a deep breath and dive back in.
Since they need to breathe in air, they sleep in weird positions. They sleep in a “bottling” position. This is where the head of the seal is out of the water but the rest of their bodies are underwater and hidden from sight. Seals only sleep with half of their brains. The other half remains active and scans for potential threats.
The picture is as cute as seeing the cuddling lion couple. It shows an adorable seal dreaming about something good while its head is over the water in a “bottling” position.
