00:01:03,878 --> 00:01:06,472
(CICADAS CHIRP)

2
00:01:28,238 --> 00:01:31,230
It's the end of another African day,

3
00:01:31,398 --> 00:01:34,993
and the game animals
are preparing for the night.

4
00:01:35,158 --> 00:01:41,347
Baboons are climbing up into the branches
of the trees and birds are coming in to roost.

5
00:01:42,238 --> 00:01:46,277
All these animals rely upon their eyes
to find their way around,

6
00:01:46,438 --> 00:01:49,430
as indeed do I.

7
00:01:49,598 --> 00:01:52,431
In a short while it will be totally dark.

8
00:01:52,598 --> 00:01:55,510
Without a torch, I would be very well advised

9
00:01:55,678 --> 00:01:59,307
not to try and stumble around in the darkness.

10
00:01:59,478 --> 00:02:05,189
But not all animals rely on sight. 0thers use
other senses to find their way around.

11
00:02:05,358 --> 00:02:09,067
And in a short while,
they will be venturing out.

12
00:02:22,038 --> 00:02:27,237
Spotted hyena. They hunt almost entirely
during the hours of darkness.

13
00:02:29,518 --> 00:02:32,510
They may travel up to 60 miles in one night,

14
00:02:32,678 --> 00:02:36,956
and they rely very much on smell
to find their way around.

15
00:02:38,078 --> 00:02:42,629
Specially scented signposts tell them
of other hyenas that have been this way.

16
00:02:42,798 --> 00:02:48,794
They add their own signatures by drawing
grass stems across the glands beneath the tail.

17
00:02:54,078 --> 00:02:57,388
These registrations will remain
detectable for up to a month,

18
00:02:57,558 --> 00:03:00,356
so each marking station is full of information

19
00:03:00,518 --> 00:03:04,511
about the comings and goings
since they were last here.

20
00:03:06,958 --> 00:03:11,076
The hyenas also deposit
their urine and dung in special places.

21
00:03:11,238 --> 00:03:13,832
To them, with their hypersensitive noses,

22
00:03:13,998 --> 00:03:19,948
these dunging stations must shine like beacons
for miles through the blackness of the night.

23
00:03:35,078 --> 00:03:37,638
Bushbabies - galagos.

24
00:03:37,798 --> 00:03:41,996
They use regular pathways
through the branches of the trees

25
00:03:42,158 --> 00:03:44,752
and mark them with great care.

26
00:03:44,918 --> 00:03:48,513
They deliberately urinate on their hands.

27
00:03:50,518 --> 00:03:55,751
Now every branch along which they run
will be impregnated with smell.

28
00:03:59,758 --> 00:04:03,307
An intruder is quickly detected and chased off.

29
00:04:03,478 --> 00:04:07,266
The residents all keep a close nose
on who is around

30
00:04:07,438 --> 00:04:11,556
and whether any of the females
are coming into breeding condition.

31
00:04:32,838 --> 00:04:36,626
Tent caterpillars are also on the move
during the night,

32
00:04:36,798 --> 00:04:40,677
marching out from their silken camp
in search of food.

33
00:04:44,278 --> 00:04:50,114
When they've stripped one bush of its leaves,
a single scout sets out to find a new supply.

34
00:04:51,998 --> 00:04:55,786
Scent glands on its rear end
leave a trail of smell.

35
00:04:55,958 --> 00:05:01,555
That is for the scout's benefit, to enable it
to find its own way back to the tent.

36
00:05:13,718 --> 00:05:20,510
A leaf, a meal. Having eaten its fill,
it heads back, following its
