What Does A Bat Look Like?
The body of the bat is mouse-like and usually covered with fine fur. The face varies greatly from one species to another. Many species have complex appendages on the snout and projections, or false ears, in front of the true ears. The ears themselves are often very large and elaborately convoluted. These facial structures are part of the sensory apparatus that emits and receives sound vibrations.
Where Do Bats Roost?
Bats may roost in attics, soffits, louvers, chimneys, under siding, eaves, roof tiles or shingles and behind shutters. In sports stadiums and parking garages, bats sometimes roost in expansion joints between concrete beams.
What Does A Bat Eat?
Most bats are economically valuable because of the large number of insects they consume. This is their main diet.
When Are Bats Most Active?
Peak activity is during the first two hours after sunset, in spring and summer.
What Areas Are Most Likely To Have Bats?
Bats occur worldwide, but in North America, you will see them in variety of habitats, especially near permanent water.
Can Bats See?
Yes, all bats can see relatively well, some bats better than others. Microbats, which rely on echolocation, can see well during the day, and about as well as humans at night. Microbats are also thought to be colour-blind. The megabat, which eats fruit or drinks nectar from flowers, has exceptionally good color eyesight, similar to the vision of an owl or cat at night. Most megabats lack the ability to echolocate and therefore rely totally on their eyesight when foraging for fruit.
