Well I never knew that!


Bats always turn left when they leave their caves.

Frog-eating bats identify edible frogs from poisonous ones by listening to the mating calls of male frogs. 

Bats sleep during the day and feed at night. The place that bats sleep in is called the “roost.”

Bats emit ultrasonic sounds to communicate with each other.

African heart-nosed bats can have such a keen sense of sound that they can hear the footsteps of a beetle walking on sand from six feet away.

Giant flying foxes, which are a type of bat, that live in Indonesia have wingspans of nearly six feet.

The flying fox of Africa has a wingspan of fifty inches!

The flying fox is a bat with a wing span over five feet.

The world’s smallest mammal is the bumblebee bat of Thailand, weighing less than a penny.
