You might have seen a lion roar before, but have you ever heard a lion snore? Time and again, we come across videos on Twitter that leave us speechless. And this video of a lion sleeping without a care in the world while snoring loudly has done exactly that.
Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Susanta Nanda shared the aforementioned video with the caption, “When the king snores, it’s louder than the roar. Lions sleep for 18-20 hrs in the wild. In zoo it is much lesser. Females take care of cubs and have to manage with around 12 hrs. Here, the king is having a long dream.”

The 29-second video shows the king of the jungle sleeping peacefully and snoring loudly. His snore doesn’t sound much different from his loud roars. We have never seen a lion snore before.
Within a few hours of sharing the video, it went viral. It garnered over 2.6k views and a lot of likes.
This video left us and Twitterati amazed and it is evident with the comments they left on the clip. One user wrote, “Amazing looks like starting a jeep.”
