Nashville Zoo Guests to Record Animal Behavior During Total Solar Eclipse

 

Nashville ZooNashville, TN – Do animals behave differently when experiencing a total solar eclipse? That’s what Nashville Zoo intends to find out on August 21st, 2017 when much of Middle Tennessee will witness an event that last took place in this area more than 150 years ago. To accomplish this, Zoo officials are asking guests to observe and record while experiencing the event.

“There is not a lot of documented observation of animal behavior during a solar eclipse,” says Chad Fifer, Nashville Zoo’s education director. “We’ve read that some animals may begin behaving strangely, such as preparing for sleep, some nocturnal animals begin waking up, and others appear not to be affected at all. We are very interested in discovering what our animals will do.”
