    All the time it remains up half of that time it spends in eating.

    "There is an animal whose metabolisom is very fast. All the time it remains up in the whole day, half of that time it spends in eating because of the fast metabolism."

    Please check.

    "There is an animal whose metabolism is very fast. It spends half its waking hours eating."

    What animal are you referring to?

    (I can't help feeling that some animals spend considerably longer than that eating.)

    I forgot its name. I saw it on Discovery channel it is a kind of roddent.

    Would it be correct as well to say "half its waking time?"
