Sid has many different “modes” that he gets into throughout the day. Usually the mode involves some sort of body positioning, movement, or a certain noise he emits. The mode he is demonstrating here is “Peanut Mode“. We’ll often find him sleeping or resting with his face almost flat against the ground (easy for him to do due to being snout-less). Why he does this, we have no idea, but he usually is very relaxed in this state.
Hopefully we’ll catch some photos of him in different modes…including the rarely-seen but equally-as-cute “Wombat Mode“.
