I am convinced they do! I often hear Teto making small barking sounds during the day, then all of the sudden he is quit! When I go to check on him he is passed out cold! I whisper hey buddy whats happening and looks at me with a look like "what, Im sleeping!" then goes back to I love that guy, but anyway yea is he dreaming of something???? Wish I knew!!

It's hard to know what is going on in their heads while sleeping. Just as we wonder about our dogs and cats wink

I never had a pet before Teto, so hearing him "talk" in his sleep was truly an amazing experience! Its so cute to hear him, I always wonder what his thinking about.

All of my pets dream and they all "talk" sometimes in their sleep.

The big kids don't talk as much in their sleep but I have caught them on occasion.

The little kids chitter, pop, bark and once in awhile crab in their sleep. smile

They're hilarious to listen to.

I beleive they do as well. Sometimes my gliders sleep in my hands or shirt and all of a sudden they just jump smile and when I check on them, they are fast asleep.

Once I held my little Wilbur in my hands and his eyes were wide open and I thought he was awake. When I went to pet his head he normally squints but didn't and all of a sudden he started chattering but his eyes stayed opened like he was in a REM sleep. LOL it was the weirdest thing but I guess that is a bit different LOL. he was still dreaming I believe.

Our gliders constantly chirp / bark / make all kinds of noises in their sleep - accompanied with the twitches, etc.

I'm a firm believer in animals having just as much emotion as us - but in a different way.

Ever see that video of the dog 'running' in its sleep while laying on its side? Then gets up and runs into the wall? Feel bad for it, but it's still funny, lmao.

They totally dream.

I hear funny little noises coming from pouches during the day and always assumed they were dreaming as well. Probably about yoggies and mealies. lol
