Nocturnal Behavior

Nocturnal behavior is the behavior of creatures that become active at night. In humans, this behavior is usually appeared by activities at night other than sleeping like reading books, doing work on laptop, or tidying up a room that makes him feel home without sleep until almost dawn. Then, he will just sleep during the day. Because he’s too active at night, so human needs energy intake by sleeping at noon.

A number of animals are also known to have nocturnal behavior. They are active at night to forage and chase their preys. Then, they will sleep during the day. Then, a number of theories mention the reason why nocturnal behavior can exist in certain animals. The conclusions obtained from a number of scientists, this behavior is one form of adaptation of animals in order to survive by hunting prey at night.

For example, the two animals which hunt rodents together. Hawks and owls are both chasing rodents. Can you imagine, if both of them hunt rodents in the afternoon, there will be fierce competition that will cause one of them to become extinct. For this reason, the owls adapt to becoming a night hunter to avoid fierce competition with hawks. Meanwhile, for rodents, night time is the right time to avoid birds that will hunt them during the day.

Besides the two animals, there are also pairs of lions and the preys such as zebras and antelopes. Those preys are known to have poor vision at night. It is easy for lions to conquer them.
