Beautiful creation of nature that many creations are defined and different from one another. There are animals who can sleep for the entire day. Fly and roam around all night to hunt their prey. Alternatively, there are animals such as Koalas sleeping for almost 20 hours. Remain awake for only 2-3 hours for doing activities.

Few reasons Dolphins sleep one eye open

Dolphins are restless animals, they are not able to sleep in one place. Often they move or are in motion when they are sleeping. This enables them to swim steadily even in deep water without being unconscious. Even in shallow water, the large animals are able to sustain pushing up upwards to breathe. 

Unconscious sleeping for Dolphins can be dangerous for them leading to death. With one eye open, they can keep their partial brain function. If their left eye is closed it means that their left brain is sleeping while with the right eye closed the right brain is sleeping. This is the unique feature in the fun-filled Dolphins that make them survive in the sea or rivers.

Natural way for them to breathe while they are in deep sleep. To breathe their brain has to be active as they do not have the inbuilt respiratory system. Animals closing both are able to breathe with the separate and natural way of breathing. 

Not only Dolphins, but other animals who have similar features are also Sea Otters. They are the cutest who keep themselves attached to the seaweeds. Crocodiles are also seen with these Unihemispheric sleeping behaviors. 

Animals often are unaware of any dangers when their brain are not working. One part of the brain unresting or on work will help in focussing on any kind of danger. So, as one part of the brain sleeps the other functions while oppositely the part of the brain works for the animal sleeps with one eye closed.
