Abstract
Acris gryllus exposed to normal diel cycles reoriented to new shorelines in 7 days. Frogs denied nocturnal celestial cues, but able to see the sun, also reoriented. Directional choices of both groups were similar in night and day tests. Frogs denied view of the day sky for 7 days scored randomly when tested at night; in daytime tests they moved toward their former shoreline.
