How Do Frogs Sleep?

Answer

It has never been determined if frogs actually sleep. They do enter periods of being very still, with their eyes closed, sometimes those periods last a long time, and it is assumed that they are sleeping. They also burrow into the ground sometimes if the weather is bad, and appear to be nearly in a hibernation sleep while the weather is nasty, then they resume normal activity.
