Cute Animal Video Of The Day: Sleeping Meerkats (VIDEO)

Remember, folks: not all meerkats are really, really irritating like the one in those adverts. Some of them are too cute for words - particularly when they're asleep.

The short-but-sweet video above features meerkat mates Chiro and Nozomi taking a nap at Toyama Family Park in Japan. Awww. A polite request, though: do try to keep the noise down while you watch this video or you might wake them up.

Feeling a bit tired now? Have a little break while you watch more sleeping animals...
