How does life respond to the dramatic event of a total solar eclipse?
There is some evidence that plant and animal life notice and react to the changes that occur during a total solar eclipse. Birds are reported to stop singing, spiders may tear down their webs, gray squirrels retreat to their dens, and more. Much of these reports are anecdotal or from captive animals.
