Even the animal kingdom has its share of slackers. These animals may look dead, but they are merely "resting their eyes." These cute and funny pictures show that humans aren't the only ones that like to slack off on the job from time to time.
Disclaimer: All of these photos were taken at zoos in or close to Chicago, and none of the animals are really dead or injured. Their poses just make them look that way, and many of the animals were just in these positions for a second or two. No animals were harmed creating these pictures, and most of them looked happier once they got up. These photos were not taken early on a Monday morning, even though they look like they were.
