Photographer Captures Adorable Lion Couple Cuddling + Gallery Of Cute Animals Sleeping

See the lions, dogs, seals, gorillas, otters, and more below cuddling up with their loved ones, and in their cutest positions… Sleeping.

Our favorite, the male lion asleep on the floor with his arm over a lioness, just like they are spooning.

Lions are often asleep in the day as they hunt nocturnally, they also love to make the most of the warmth of the ground.

This polar bear has fallen asleep in a peculiar position on the sea ice. Polar bears typically sleep for around eight hours a day, just like us humans.

Although they don’t have a pattern like us and instead sleep whenever they feel like it.

Lions are often found sleeping in/on trees. Did you know male lions sleep for up to 20 hours a day!

A bulldog pup, when they are this young they can sleep pretty much all day! Exploring a new world is tiring work!

Seals breathe in oxygen, yet they live in the sea. So they sleep in a position called ‘bottling,’ which means only their head is out of the water while their body is submerged in water.

Did you know that they only sleep with one half of their brain at a time, just like most other marine mammals, this is to remain alert for potential dangers.

You may have seen this before, sea otters rest both their hands on their chest while sleeping to help them balance.

A tanny owl sleeping inside a tree hollow, looking very camouflaged!

A brave squirrel checking out a sleeping leopard on a tree branch, same as lions, these big cats hunt nocturnally so sleep in the day.

Quite possible the cutest solo sleeping position we have ever seen. Gorillas sleep for around 12 hours a day on the jungle floor.

A lynx kitten asleep in a hilarious position on a tree, and a snowy owl.
