Sleeping Positions of Giant Pandas


 World Sleep Day is celebrated on March 21st. Sound sleep is necessary to wake up refreshed and full of energy, and giant pandas spend most of their time either sleeping or eating. This cute and clumsy creature is actually quite flexible. When sleeping, they can contort their bodies into various positions and prefer to lie flat or on their sides, stretch out or curl up.

On her perch, plump He Hua looks peaceful deep asleep. Even when He Hua wakes up, she lazily opens her eyes to admire the turquoise bamboo forest around her as if half dreaming.
