Phototactic behaviours are observed from prokaryotes to amphibians and are a basic form of orientation. We showed that the marbled crayfish displays phototaxis in which the behavioural response reversed from negative to positive depending on external light conditions. Animals reared in a 12‐L/12‐D light cycle showed negative phototaxis during daytime and positive phototaxis during night‐time. Animals...
