They stay in huge groups. These groups can number up to a million or more bats.

Did you know?

Echolocation is a technique used by animals to figure out where things are using sound. Bats use this too.

Bats are a really important part of the ecosystem. They help fruit seeds and pollen travel from one place to the next because of how far they fly for food.


Straw-colored bats have been recorded traveling over 100 miles or 160 kilometers a night.

Most bats echolocate with their voice box in their throat, and some even click their tongues. Fruit bats, however, have a different type of echolocation. They use their wings to make a clicking noise that helps them echolocate.
