Well, I did say it may increase their odds. For instance, if the creatures' aggression was related to the human's proximity to their nests, their mission could be placed in a lot less jeopardy by simply setting up camp at night further away. To realize or theorize this, a scientist with some experience of insight into animal/insect behaviour may have been useful. Just a theory.Exactly. It was pretty much kill or be killed.
Do I want to know why they happen to be nocturnal or why they're so territorial? No. I'm more interested in either setting up a defensible position or getting the gate to work. Either of which is more valuable.
