Head into the twilight and hunt for nocturnal animals.

Grab your torch and head outside at night to see how many different animals you can spot.

  • Listen carefully – can you hear anything snuffling through the undergrowth?
  • How many different creatures can you see?
  • Don’t forget to look out for minibeasts!

Lots of animals come out at night, so keep your eyes peeled!
