    For the past week or so, I have been operating as if I were nocturnal. All of my responsibilities during that time could be completed in the evening or late afternoon so I slept during the day and became productive at night. It helped me to deal with the fact that some of my neighbors think that 3am-4am is a great time to noisily enter the apartment building. If I’m not asleep when they do that, it doesn’t bother me so much.

    I don’t recommend this sleeping schedule to most creatures, but I would like to know what your favorite nocturnal creatures are. Mine is the badger.

    (Looking at that link caused me to look up the word “crepuscular”, which is a word that exists because some animals aren’t truly nocturnal or diurnal, but instead function during dawn or dusk.)

    My second-favorite nocturnal creature is the owl.

    Hmm… I’m not sure what my favorite is. I shall have to think about that.

    Hedgehogs, 100%… How cannot I not not choose my patronous…

    I had a pet hedgehog. If they get a string wrapped around their foot, they chew off their foot.

    I’m sorry. It’s…they would rather lose their foot than it be useless due to lack of circulation.
    Ours did get a string around its foot, but we cut it off (took like 30 minutes) so ours was ok. They are super sweet!! Except when you are sitting and they run up your basketball shorts and curl into a ball

    My favorite nocturnal creature is the cat.

    Nothing like being woken up at all hours of the night amirite?

    There are many fascinating creatures on the list of nocturnal animals. I think Josiah’s favorite would be the “Aye-Aye”, but there are many unique ones to choose from.

    So would the Hedgehog Olympics have been held at night, since the creatures appear to be nocturnal?

    That is something to consider… I mean, if that’s when they were at their peak, probably.

    I am general nocturnal, so can I be my own favorite nocturnal animal?

    I don’t see why not.

    Good day, General Nocturnal! Of course you can be your own favorite animal.

    The Not-Forum: where no typo goes unexploited. Why are adverbs so hard? It occurs to me that the name General Lee and the word ‘generally’ are nearly indistinguishable when spoken aloud.

    Especially when using a southern accent.
