It's hard being an adorable animal, so tiring, that sometimes a nap is unavoidable! In fact, the smaller the animal, the more sleep it seems to need: little brown bats sleep a whopping 19.9 hours out of 24, chipmunks for 15 hours, but horses just need 2.9 hours per day!

This list of sleeping animals should put you in the mood for an afternoon nap, but don't fall asleep yet! We need you to vote on the cutest, sleepiest, animal, or post your own sleeping animals photos below!

Isn't this a chipmunk? Squirrels don't have stripes.

This is so funny :) I was just trying to explain this to my kids, that puppies actually do that. They fall asleep where they stand when they get tired. I have to show them this photo :)

Mine did that. Any creative activity she has to contribute with her expert input - sleeping on the laptop keyboard as I type, chasing balls of yarn while I knit, trying to help me sew on my sewing machine... Ad infinitum .... But she is my studio cat and greatest companion!
