Word Wednesday- Crepuscular

Standard

Today’s word is inspired by my feline family member, Hobbes. He’s CREPUSCULAR and makes me laugh when he gets spun up in the evenings.

CREPUSCULAR means of or relating to twilight. It also means active or occurring during twilight. There are a number of animals that are defined as such, including cats, rabbits, ferrets, bears, deer, moose, possums and even wombats. There are also a number of insects that are active near twilight.

Drop this word into a conversation this week. Go ahead, you know you want to. Here’s Hobbes climbing the fireplace. Can you see him?
