Sharing the video, Praveen Kaswan wrote, “This sleeping elephant family is the best thing on the internet today. Via CCTV (sic).” The video he shared is an aerial view of the elephants sleeping next to each other. The video has over 7,000 views and 285 retweets.

Fascinating facts

Earlier, he had shared a similar picture of the mammoth family on Twitter and shared some fascinating facts about them.

“Not always sleep like that. This looks cute so shared. They sleep in a standing position mostly. When I see they have only two jobs; sleep & eat. It doesn’t mean they do it half-half. They sleep for short time. But all remaining time they eat (sic),” one of his tweets reads.

“They don’t have an efficient digestive system. So they need to spend all their time eating. They look heavy but they walk a lot. That is why called long-ranging animals. A herd can walk 20 km a day. Presence of kids reduces the speed though (sic),” another tweet read.
