Ever wonder about things that go bump in the night? What about the creatures that are lurking in the dark? Well, grab your flashlights, and let’s learn about Nocturnal Animals!
What does nocturnal even mean? Nocturnal means that these animals are more active and awake during the night and that they sleep during the day. We tend to see these creatures at dawn (just before the sun comes up), dusk (just before the sun goes down), or even when the moon is shining (kids.kiddle.co).
Nocturnal animals have special adaptations that help them live in the dark. Their eyes are larger to help them see in the lower light. They also have heightened hearing and smell. (active wild.com)
