Summary As the sun sets and its great heat and light are extinguished, a nighttime world wakes, full of characters who have carved a niche in the darkness. This film reveals how animals make use of darkness, and how they overcome the dangers from the lack of light and heat, and reveals strange ways the full moon affects life on earth. Dusk sees three million wrinkled lipped bats swirl out of their cave to feast on nocturnal insects. A sea dragon courts a female in the dying light of the Australian reef; he must convince her he's the one before dark, when predators come out in force. And as darkness takes hold, a pride of lions decide to go hunting. Their powerful night vision should give them the upper hand over their prey, but will a full moon spoil their plans?
