Top Definition
Typically a grad student who sleeps until 3 or 4 in the afternoon on weekends, after having averaged only three hours of sleep a night during the course of the previous school week. Sleepopotami tend to congregate (often in each others beds) and multiply at prodigious rates immediately following final examination periods.
