I’ve searched here for info on light cycle for BP’s with no luck. I know they are nocturnal and arborial but if they are kept in a dark breeder rack for example how do they know it’s night?
If an animal is in the wild spending it’s day in a burrow or turmite mound and peaks it’s nose out it knows its time to stay where it is until dark. If it’s dark all the time how would it know/regulate it’s sleep wake cycle?
Mine are in vivs at the moment so when the lights go out at night they always come out. If it’s dark all the time would they always be out?
According to Dawkins all living creatures have and need a regular sleep wake cycle to varying degrees.
Long term do BP’s need a light cycle to regulate their sleep wake cycle for optimum wellbeing?
