Lizards share sleep patterns with humans


Lizards share sleep patterns with humans, according to scientists.

Until now, it was thought features of human sleep such as rapid eye movements were seen only in mammals and birds.

Now, a study of the bearded dragon - a popular pet - suggests these distinctive sleep rhythms emerged hundreds of million of years ago in a distant ancestor.

They could even have been present in dinosaurs, say scientists.
