Snoozin In The Animal Kingdom

Sleep is something that I miss ever so much as my 15 month old son does not sleep very well, coffee is the only thing that keeps me awake these days as sleep deprivation has well and truly taken hold. When you stop getting some much needed shut eye you really start to become interested in sleep, so when I came across this infographic created by Mattress Next Day on how different animals snooze I was fascinated.

As you can see below us humans need 7-8 hours sleep per day and we can become easily sleep deprived if we do not get enough. Some animals like giraffes can go weeks without napping though and poor dolphins are probably very tired as infant dolphins do not sleep at all in their first month of life.
