This just looks so sad

Sleeping with her head tucked under and feet as a pillow
Think that tail will help if she does fall?

Do they sleep like this in the wild?
Yes, It protects their soft parts by curling up as well as conserve heat by breathing on themselves. There is also the theory that when in certain trees it may help confuse predictors by looking like a large seed pod.
Reference to a fellow filckr photo of one such seed pod www.flickr.com/photos/noe_pagan/1227501945/

Of course I've seen photos of wild ones sprawled out sometimes too. I suppose it depends on the temp and how safe they feel.

Tamanduas will also borrow or steal burrows to sleep in and possibly make their own. Pua often likes to dig a burrow when she started getting tired on a walk if she finds a good place and is always tying to go down into any she finds, regardless of if it appear occupied or not.
