On a train and idly looking out of the window at fields of cows, sheep etc. There are lots of young ‘uns out at this time of year, but you always see them standing up munching grass with their mothers. So it struck me: do these kinds of baby animals ever nap, or do they just sleep at night? I know puppies, kittens, and presumably lion cubs etc. do nap.
Well, that sounds enchanting. I just wondered since human young are generally so helpless and rubbish compared with other species. I will never stop being astounded at the way e.g. a giraffe is born, drops a couple of metres to the ground, then just gets up and starts walking around straight away.
