What we do In Colombo Nocturnal Wildlife tour?? While some animals are active during the day, others are nocturnal. Twice daily, as the sun rises and later sets, animals around the world swap places, taking turns to use the food and water supplies of a particular area. Nocturnal animals generally have highly developed hearing and smelling characteristics and their eyesight is specially adapted to low-light conditions. They are scent tasters, sound navigators and night hunters, and comprise almost half of all living vertebrates.
Although we may not notice, during the day, wildlife behavior is largely disturbed by human presence. During the night, however, we are able to observe it closely. Viewing wildlife at night in an urban setting is a unique experience – a great opportunity to obtain a view of the local environment from a totally different perspective. This tour will suit anyone who is interested in wildlife and wants to experience it in a special and different setting. Learn More : Colombo Nocturnal Wildlife tour
