And Now the News in Science…Chinstrap penguins in Antarctica must always be on guard when protecting their eggs and chicks. To do this, on average they sleep for only four seconds at a time! However, they nod off thousands of times each day! These microsleeps add up to about eleven hours per day. Researchers discovered this by harmlessly attaching sensors that measure brainwave activity to the penguin parents. Two other animals with weird sleeping habits are frigatebirds, which can sleep with one half of their brain at a time while flying, and northern elephant seals, which dive deep underwater to take fifteen-minute naps.
