Gorilla Can Barely Stay Awake While it Eats

We’ve all been there before: you’re on your Tuesday afternoon lunch break, and you can’t decide if you’d rather nap in your car or eat lunch. Well, why not do both? This Silverback mountain gorilla accomplishes the impossible by taking a nap while enjoying a yummy snack. If only we knew about nap-eating in college, we’d have saved so much time.

In the gorilla’s defense, it’s quite exhausting dealing with the immense amount of challenges mountain gorillas face. From hunting to habitat loss, things are not easy for these critically endangered animals. Thankfully, their populations are growing, albeit slowly, as a result of conservation efforts.
