The nocturnal bottleneck was used as a scientific hypothesis describing placental mammals, which was proposed by Gordon Lynn Walls in 1942. These species could survive only by avoiding daytime activity during times in which dinosaurs were the dominant taxon, it was only after the extinction of the dinosaurs that mammals started exploring the daylight. In 2018, a new study by Kaitlyn Gaynor from University of Berkeley published in Science found that mammals are becoming more nocturnal in response to human activity, and we are creating a more nocturnal natural world.
This video demonstrates a human fictional evolution in Chronobiology that humans possess night vision just as mammals- to see in the dark fairly well, and a lawyer was found seeking for wolves in the forest at night.
