Giraffes, it turns out, only need to sleep laying down about 30 minutes a day. They’re able to get the rest of their sleep while standing up. It might be because laying down is so laborious for them…
Or it might be because it’s hard to keep those legs straight.
Or it might be because it’s such a long way to the ground
But the fact remains, they manage to doze while standing up.
Now, why am I rambling about this? Just jealous, that’s all. I really wish I could sleep standing up. It’d come in really handy at work.
