Can nocturnal animals become non nocturnal?

In: Biology

While it’s hard to answer for every single nocturnal species, many would become active during day or dusk/dawn if food availability, predation or temperature during the night got worse, or if they got better during the day. We can often see captive animals that are supposed to be nocturnal show cathameral behavior, meaning their activity is spread throughout the day instead of being focused solely on day/night/dusk/dawn.
