The Seven Sleepiest Animals

Do you know which animals spend the most time sleeping? We all know house cats sleep all day long, but they only come in at number seven on this list from Environmental Graffiti.
Cats along with mice, pigs and cheetahs love to spend a lot of quality time snoozing. They can sleep for around 12 hours per day. Rats, gerbils and lions are a little ahead of them as they can sleep for about 13 hours a day. This means they essentially spend 2/3rd of their entire lives in dreamland.

As you can see, there are way more than seven animals in this article. You probably won't be surprised to find out which one is the #1 sleepiest! Link

I think one of the ultimate sleepiest aminals got left out. Even more sleepier than a human baby, yes.

Ferrets. Serious, professional sleepers. I believe the average is upwards of 20 hours a day.
