Animals have a way of making even the simplest things adorable.

This time it is baby owls who are making us go “awww” and it’s all because of their hilarious sleep position.

It turns out that baby owls are born with heads that are too big and heavy for their little bodies, and as a result, they sleep face down!

This adorable discovery was quickly spread around Twitter, although some people thought that it was too cute to be true.

However, these doubts were quickly put to rest after other users began sharing corroborative material featuring napping owls.

We just couldn’t be happier to hear that these fluffy little baby birds really do sleep facedown!

Of course, as the owls grow older, their bodies eventually “catch up” up their comically oversized heads and allow them to sleep sitting up.

The face-planting owls have quickly gone viral, and online, people from all over the world are enjoying a good chuckle at the sight of these snoozing sweethearts.


People are finding the sleepy baby owls both hilarious and relatable.
