Dragons Sleep

Post by Acostor » June 1st, 2017, 4:38 pm

Here’s in interesting question I thought of. How long do dragons sleep? I’d say approximately 10 hours, mostly because they don’t have a lot of predators, if any. I know I’ll sleep 12 hours for sure.

What do you think.

Not at all? They are magical creatures after all. Can if they want though.
People are like dragons. They can be dangerous, but they can be friendly. But whatever you are, take flight into the blue abyss of endless possibility!

You’re right, I keep forgetting that. :lol:

According to our [current understanding of sleep](https://youtu.be/MUw3s4evhTE), I would say it makes sense for dragons to not sleep that much.

This study was specific to mammals, though. But it still makes enough sense to tempt me to reapply it to more species

Depends on how you understand dragons (biologically). For creatures naturally binded to magic I think it would make sense to sleep short, but often, keeping all thoughts and memories sorted out and in check. I feel like older dragons should sleep more, because their mind is more... filled (poor word choice I know). I can be wrong

I think that even if they are magic creatures, they would still need to sleep in order to keep the body in check and sort out their memories, although as said above, they may need to sleep less.

Hmm good question and well since they are magical ( mostly) they could sleep 1-10 hours or not need any sleep at all hell it could be like in movies and books where they sleep for centuries on a pile of gold just waiting for some poor adventurer too try his/her luck! ^^
