Word of the Week: CREPUSCULAR

November 01 04:16 2010 Print This Article

Crepuscular is used to describe animals that are active at twilight. No I am not talking about Edward or Jacob! Twilight is defined as dawn or dusk. For a bit of a science lesson; being crepuscular gives the animal an antipredator adaptation since many predators hunt at night and others are active at mid day.
