perhaps the important factor in determining sleep necessity is the rate at
which the individual species uses its mental abilities.  Thus humans would
have high sleep necessity, rabbits which are on the constant lookout for
predators during their active cycles also use a large percentage of their
mentality.  Horses, having very few serious predators use less.  bats and
armadillos both sleep to conserve physical energy.  JMHO


Like science and religion, I like to keep my beer and
milk seperate.  Not that I have anything against beer,
or milk, I just dont think they mix very well.
