Give it a Rest!

Zzzz…zzzz…zzzz…Oh sorry! You just caught us getting some beauty sleep. We humans need a lot of sleep in order for our brains and bodies to function. In fact, we spend about 1/3 of our lives asleep, and if someone went without sleep for long enough, it could actually kill them!

Of course, humans aren’t the only ones who need a little shuteye. Check out these animals catching some Zs.

Did you know…

Sperm whales sleep in an up-down position with their faces pointing to the sky (underwater, obviously).
Horses and Zebras nap standing up, allowing them to make a quick escape if a predator is nearby.
Walruses can go 84 hours without sleep.
Groups of sea otters will hold hands to keep from drifting apart while sleeping.
Ducks sleep in a row and the ones at both ends keep one eye open to look out for predators.
Giraffes take short power naps for a total of just 30 minutes of sleep day.
Koalas sleep for 20-22 hours.
