Mark with a circle which animal you have observed Indian Marten. Why have you chosen this species? The Indian Marten was in a place where I could see the phases of the eclipse very well. What was its behaviour during the eclipse? Write it down or draw it. Almost from the moment the eclipse started the marten (in the left cage) got a little nervous and tried to get comfortable to go to bed. When the sun was Âź (or even less) gone it was already sleeping its legs hanging down. Sometimes however it yawned. When birds got loud it woke up but then went back to sleep. It did the same when disturbed in other ways. When the sun was back the marten started moving little-by-little and turning around. (When it was dark it was dead asleep). When the sun was 2/3 back it woke up and started licking and scratching itself. And then jumped down to the ground and started walking about the cage.
