Agoutis and Ocelots

Quite an interesting study from Panama

http://focusingonwildlife.com/news/for-agoutis-the-night-is-fraught-with-peril/

Its interesting because it relates to the question – about which, so far as I know there is no consensus – on the best time to spotlight. Full moon or no moon, early or late in the night etc. Presumably similar factors govern that as govern Agoutis. And it all depends on the species, how hungry they are or might become, and when their predators are most likely to be active.

Or maybe not! Wish I knew.
