Wolf Struggles To Stay Awake While Sunbathing In Snow-Covered Enclosure

Wolf struggling to stay awake while sunbathing in its snow-covered enclosure.

In the clip, recorded in China’s northernmost province of Heilongjiang, the animal can be seen playing with another wolf as the person recording pets it through the fence.

Then several moments later it split ways with the other wolf and it laid down on the snowy ground in order to catch some sunrays and get some vitamin D.

But as soon as it touched the ground, the wolf started repeatedly yawning before slowly dozing off to sleep by the end of the video.


Amazed social media users did not refrain from sharing their thoughts in the comment box after the video shared on China’s version of TikTok, Douyin. On Wednesday, 13th December.

Douyin user ‘I always knew what you did last summer’ said: “Sleepy as a dog.”

Then user ‘Underground rapper’ commented: “Yo! This big black wolf was so sleepy that he yawned until his head snapped, and finally fell down. It was so funny!”
