    Many animals are adapted to feeding at night, things like large eyes and b/w vision make the night safer for them, but many predators have similar adaptions to hunt at night.

    Lions for instance can hunt during the day or at night, for a multitude of reasons.

    You've never been out in the woods at night, have you? All kinds of creatures looking for a meal- and you aren't above being part of one.

    "Hide"? Maybe sleeping. Unless they are nocturnal - in which case they are not hiding unless there are nocturnal predators.
