Spectral tarsier

Life in the dark

Creatures that come out at night or live in other dark places, such as caves, often have amazingly sharp senses of hearing and smell. This makes it easier for them to find their way and their prey in the dark, even if they can’t see at all. Some animals have excellent night vision, thanks to their enormous eyes. In the middle of the night, they can see perfectly.
