Curiosity's coverage of the 2017 eclipse is brought to you by Rocket Mortgage by Quicken Loans.
If you didn't know it was coming, a total solar eclipse would freak you right out. The moon covering the sun so that the peak of daytime turns into the dead of night — only to become daytime again minutes later — would probably make you pray and curse and do a rain dance simultaneously. Well, welcome to being a wild animal. There are no animal astronomers, so wildlife has no idea what's going on when an eclipse takes place. As a result, they do some very weird things.
