If an ant could dream, what would it dream about? But wait a minute — do ants even sleep? Many people would be surprised to learn that the answer to both question is “yes” and “yes.” Ants not only sleep and take regular naps, but the evidence strongly suggest they do dream.
So the next question might be: Do ant sleep during the night or during the day? Seeing ants going about their business during daylight is a common sight, so one might conclude that ants work by day and sleep by night. But the story is much more complex.
