ANIMALS AND LIGHT
Devon Ritter from the Memphis Zoo explores the relationship animals have to light. She explains how nocturnal animals – like a porcupine – depend on senses other than sight to navigate in the dark. She discusses how animals absorb sunlight for energy, and how sunlight helps create the food animals eat. Devon also introduces bioluminescent animals, like fireflies, that make their own light.
