    They’re far from us on the tree of life, and their brains are very different, and some scientists say we should take care before we assume that cephalopods sleep like we do.

    I have no doubt. Someday we'll understand how much the other creatures are like us in the important ways.

    It's true Death Angel, these are things that we do not think about but that are very interesting and they are surely more like us than we think.
