Terrifying (but cute) Pictures of Animals Yawning

Thankfully Tiger's also get tired, thusly saving everything else from the terror of being eaten alive. Unless Tigers sleepwalk? Or Sleephunt? It's possible.

Today we’ve decided to gather a collection of the best COPYRIGHT FREE pictures of animals going at the yawn thing. And this is it, what what.

Here’s a collection of cats, dogs, horses, monkeys, and others all yawning away like the maniacs they are. Having been a pet owner of fish, cats, dogs, and hamsters over the years our very own esteemed editor, Mr. Wapojif, can attest to the power of yawning (and check out pandiculation).

Yawning Beasts

Before we start, one dog we know here will remain nameless for anonymity purposes (on his request), yawns a fair bit. For him it’s an epic occurrence and a notable moment in his day.

As for cats (who spend around 12 hours a day sleeping anyway, the layabouts) their yawn always seems a step away from dislocating their brains and sending the cat off into deep space – back to the planet whence they came! And, indeed, the cat yawn is the most terrifying of them all (a global event, almost) with rows of super sharp teeth on display.

Kicking things off is this image of a monkey yawning away. Tired, dear? Well you shouldn't be! It's not like you have a 9-5 job to keep up with, all you need to do is sit around eating bananas!

This alligator is either yawning, or it’s about to shred something alive. It’s hard to tell, but according to the source it is yawning.
A Herring Gull gives its best Pavarotti impersonation.
This lioness is either drunk or having a major argument with the King of the Jungle (the Lion, y’all, not Elvis).
It could well be sneezing, but this Raccoon is, indeed, just tired. Maybe it sneezed a few minutes later.
Dog yawns (given how much dogs can smell) probably aren’t too nice on the nostrils.
The first of our epic cat yawn pictures. When a cat yawns it is, make no mistake, a global event!
Whilst lions are great beasts it’s advisable to steer clear of them.
Pandiculation in action (check Sunday’s post for meaning, you dunces).
Cat’s do sleep 12 hours a day, but they also have a lot of time for yawning. And eating.
Check out those fangs!
Here’s a Cheetah, cheating its way out of sleeping by yawning.
“What time is it Mr. Wolf?” went the old playround game thing. Good old escapism. Of course, in reality, if it’s Mr. Wolf’s dinner time he will shred you limb from limb.
Even Guinea Pigs yawn! We’ve not seen out pet Chinese Dwarf Hamster, Beans, yawn yet.
Elvis yawning.
Clearly this dog beast has species related issues.
Yes.
This rat needs a trip to the dentist.
Wolves are cute when they yawn. Daaaaaaaaaaaww.
Who knew hedhehogs had such sharp teeth? Not I!
Horses are, by far, the most stupid looking yawning creatures.
See.
And finally, a panther shows us all how it’s done!

    • The guinea pig’s non-yawning friend looks indifferent to the whole yawning process. I’ll be keeping a keen eye on Beans from now on, but in over a year I’ve never seen a yawn.
