Cuteness alert! Some of the pictures you'll see below are extremely adorable.
#1 Sea otters sleep in water, sometimes holding their hands
#2 Giraffes sleep 30 minutes a day
#3 Walruses can sleep anywhere
Sleeping on land is easy, while doing it in water requires some resourcefulness. Just like otters, walruses sleep floating on water, sometimes filling their pharyngeal pouches with air. They also use their tusks while sleeping: with their help, walruses hang from ice floes, letting their body rest in water.

#5 Some ducks sleep with one eye open
#6 Great frigatebirds can sleep while flying
#7 A snail can sleep for several years
Anyway, when the surroundings are not inspiring enough, snails just withdraw into their shells and secrete a layer of mucous to avoid drying and starvation. Such hibernation can last for several years – the snail will wake up when the conditions improve. The longest recorded snail hibernation lasted for 4 years.
