Adults and babies alike dream for around two hours per night even those of us who claim not to. In fact, researchers have found that people usually have several dreams each night, each one typically lasting for between five to 20 minutes.

2) You Forget Most of Your Dreams

As much as 95 percent of all dreams are quickly forgotten shortly after walking. According to one theory about why dreams so difficult to remember, the changes in the brain that occurs during sleep do not support the information processing and storage needed for memory formation to take place.

3) Not All Dreams Are in Color

Another study showed that men's dreams tend to have more aggressive content and physical activity, while women's dreams contain more rejection and exclusion, as well as more conversation than physical activity.

Women tend to have slightly longer dreams that feature more characters. when it comes to the characters that typically appear in dreams, men dream about other men twice as often as they do about women, while women tend to dream about both sexes equally.

5) Animals Probably Dream

Many think that when a sleeping dog wags its tail or moves its legs, it is dreaming. While it's hard to say for sure whether this is truly the case, researchers believe that it's likely that animals do indeed dream.
