In this truly adorable video, you can watch a cute little dormouse snoring in a zookeeper's hand:
The dormouse hibernates for long periods, spending up to one third of its entire life asleep. This particular rodent is a resident of the Surrey Wildlife Trust. Surrey mammal project officer Dave Williams shot the video and the Surrey Wildlife Trust is accepting donations as part of their dormouse project, which seeks to help protect the endangered animal.
