It has all the ingredients of an internet sensation.

Baby animals? Check.

Sleepy time? Check.

And big, googly eyes? You bet.

Within hours of hitting YouTube the video, featuring two ostrich chicks drifting off to sleep, had garnered hundreds of views.

Here's more from the video's creator, Camels & Friends

"They're the biggest bird on the planet, but they have to start somewhere. These tiny adorable chicks will grow up to be up to 9 feet tall and weigh 350 pounds. With spots and stripes and porcupine like backs they don't look much like the adults they become, but who can complain? They're too cute for words."

We certainly agree.
