Fun Facts

Bats can be found pretty much anywhere except where there is extreme weather or in polar regions.

70% of bats consume insects.There are also fruit-eating bats; nectar-eating bats; carnivorous bats that prey on small mammals, birds, lizards and frogs; fish-eating bats, and perhaps most famously, the blood-sucking vampire bats of South America.

From echoes, the bats can determine the size of objects, how far away they are, how fast they are traveling and even their texture, all in a split second.At birth, a pup weighs up to 25 percent of its mother’s body weight, which is like a human mother giving birth to a 31 pound baby!A single little brown bat can eat up to 1000 mosquitoes in a single hour, and is one of the world's longest-lived mammals for its size, with life spans of almost 40 years.
