STXBob, JJ guessed the leatherback right away but we were not thinking about anything living on earth so we didn't post that. When Swan said, Quite on the contrary I started looking at black holes. Not pressure or force but vacuume. Just about drove me crazy trying to beat hubby.

Thanks for the hint Swan to get us back on course.

Hang in there JJ- we're with you!
Tam, yes. Both dolphins and whales get their sleep by keeping half their brains awake while the other half sleeps. They do this because they must conscienciously breathe; they're breathing is not an automatic sympathetic response like ours and many other species on earth. While sleeping, they like to pair up and/ or move in groups for protection. Each half of their brains takes a turn at sleeping. Excellent!
