Can Whales Get A Good Night's Sleep?

Unlike most animals, whales are conscious breathers. All mammals sleep, but whales cannot afford to become unconscious for long because they may drown. It is thought that only one hemisphere of the whale's brain sleeps at a time, so they rest but are never completely asleep.

If they can't really sleep, does that mean whales don't dream?

Snake teeth
Say "ahhhh"
And while all snakes have teeth, not all snakes have what are classified as fangs. Fangs are long, hollow teeth that emit poison, which means only venomous snakes have them. Some snakes have fangs that can fold back into their mouth so they don't bite themselves.
