MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Do animals dream?

If you have a dog you’ve probably seen them twitch or react in their sleep which seems to prove that they dream. But do all animals actually have dreams?!

Studies that have been done on rats show that they dream about getting to food or running through mazes. Most mammals on the planet go through “REM sleep”, which is the cycle in which dreams occur for us humans. Therefore scientists think there’s a good chance they all dream because of that.

Let’s just hope they don’t have nightmares.
