Why do We Dream? Why are Sloths so Sleepy? Why are Camels grumpy?

Friday, 24 April

Hello and welcome to episode 58 of Everything Under The Sun – I hope everyone is doing okay at home!

This week we're talking about sleepy sloths, dreams and camels.

Our first question is about a sleepy animal, called a sloth and it comes from Alice, 5, she would like to know why do sloths sleep so much? 

We also discuss Catrin's question, which is why do we dream? 

I have David Eagleman who is a neuroscientist - that’s someone who studies the brain - and a best selling author. He has written books all about the brain and is interested in dreams, he has an answer for you, over to David!  

Our third question is about something grumpy which you might feel if you don't get enough sleep, or you have a bad dream it is from Christopher. He would like to know why are camels grumpy? 

A big thank you to Christopher, Catrin and Alice for this week’s questions and to David Eagleman for talking to us about why we dream! 

I hope you all have a lovely week, coming up with fun things to do while you’re all at home and wishing you all sweet dreams.
