crepuscular (comparative more crepuscular, superlative most crepuscular)

  1. Of or resembling twilight; dim.

    • 1999, J. Anne Helgren, Communicating with Your Cat, page 51, ISBN 0764108557
      That's why cats are crepuscular — most active at dawn and dusk — because mice and rats forage for food during these hours when fewer of their natural enemies are around.
