To help them, they have special eyes and ears.  Owls have very large eyes. These eyes absorb more light than normal. Since there is little light during thenight, it is helpful to be able to absorb more of it. This helps owls find food in the dark.Owls also have very good hearing. Even when owls are in the trees, they can hear small animals movingin the grass below. This helps owls catch their prey even when it is very dark. Like owls, mice are alsonocturnal animals. Mice have an excellent sense of smell. This helps them find food in the dark.Being nocturnal helps mice to hide from the many different animals that want to eat them. Most of thebirds, snakes, and lizards that like to eat mice sleep at night — except, of course, owls!1) In paragraph 1, we learn that Owls are nocturnal.
