Nocturnal animals are animals that are most active during the night. Most nocturnal animals have very sensitive eyes that can help them see in the dark. Some nocturnal animals include bats, owls, moths, and rats.
Nocturnal animals typically have very special adaptations that help them survive in the dark. For example, many nocturnal animals have ears that are very large and sensitive. This helps them to hear their prey moving around in the dark.
Nocturnal animals also often have a keen sense of smell. This helps them to track down their food in the darkness.
