Nightfall

Discover the weird and wonderful creatures that venture out after dark at our Nightfall habitat. Including the Ghost Bat and Brushtail Possum.



Have you ever heard something spooky go "bump" in the night? Well, what if you heard a slither, a skitter, a swoop or a twitter? The soft fall of a paw… then the ominous click of a claw? And what if you weren't home in bed with a light switch handy, but in the middle of a sandy, moonlit plain with gleaming animal eyes tracking your every move?

The weirdest and most wonderful creatures venture out after all the other animals have gone to bed - some want to escape the heat of the midday sun, while others know the best meals are had late at night, but all have unique adaptations to find their way around, from the echolocation of bats to the Bilby's pin-sharp ears and keen sense of smell. And it's easy to guess how the tiny, mouse-like Dunnart finds its way around, with its huge eyes and long, sensitive whiskers helping it find beetles, grubs and larvae.
