The BBC has a collection of wonderful video clips of nocturnal animals. Read about how we know that Velociraptors hunted at night (from National Geographic). And here is a nice article about night-blooming flowers (New York Times).

Back home in India, the Urban Slender Loris Project is asking for volunteers to help survey this beautiful primate. And you can read about the bats of India here. There is also a wonderful cartoon guide to myths about bats at the Bat Conservation India Trust website.


When taking part in this month’s contest, do be cautious. Make sure you are in a safe place first. Tell us what you heard and saw during your night vigil — there is lots of activity at night! Write down your findings and send them to us at for a chance to win a book on Indian animals!
