Some species are diurnal (active during the day), many others are nocturnal (active at night) and still others may be crepuscular (active at twilight and/or dawn).

In addition to the time of day when a species is most active, a number of weather related factors also influence when many species are most active. These weather factors include air temperature, barometric pressure, wind, rain and moon phases.

Persons with a more serious interest in studying, locating, photographing or collecting reptiles, turtles, crocodilians and amphibians in their natural habitats generally pay close attention to local weather conditions in order to maximize their efforts in the field.
