5) There Are More Than 1,400 Species Of Bats Worldwide

 Bats can be found almost everywhere on Earth except in extreme deserts and polar regions (link is external). The difference in size and shape is equally impressive. Bats range in size from Kitty’s hog-nosed bat (also known as a bumblebee bat), which weighs less than a cent — making it the world’s smallest mammal — to flying foxes, which can span up to 6 feet. The U.S. and Canada are home to about 45 species of bats, with others found on U.S. Pacific and Caribbean territories.

6) Not All Bats Hibernate.

 Although bears and bats are the two most famous types of hibernators, not all bats winter in caves. Some bat species, like the spotted bat, survive when it’s cold by migrating to warmer regions in search of food.

7) Bats Have Few Natural Enemies

disease is one of the biggest threats. Owls, hawks and snakes eat bats, but that’s nothing compared to the millions of bats who have died from white-nose syndrome. The disease — named for the bat muzzle and a species of white fungus on its wings — affects hibernating bats and has been found in 37 states and seven Canadian provinces. This deadly syndrome makes some species more severe than others. In less than 10 years, it killed more than 90 percent of the northern long-eared bat, little brown bat, and tricolor bat population. Scientists are working hard to understand the disease. You can help by avoiding places where bats hibernate (link is external). If you do go underground, disinfect your clothing, footwear, and gear to avoid spreading the disease to other areas.

8) No Bats,

 say goodbye to bananas, avocados and mangoes. Over 300 fruit species rely on bats for pollination (link is external). Bats help spread the seeds of nuts, figs and cocoa – the main ingredient in chocolate. Without bats, we wouldn’t have plants like agave or the iconic cactus cacti.

9) Night Worms Are Most Afraid Of Bats.

 Each night, bats can eat their body weight of insects, numbering thousands! This insect-based diet helps foresters and farmers protect their crops from pests.

10)  Bats Are The Only Mammals That Can Fly.

While flying squirrels can only glide short distances, bats are true fliers. Bat wings resemble modified human hands – imagine the skin between your fingers is bigger, thinner and more stretched. This flexible skin membrane that stretches between each long phalanx and many movable joints enables bats to fly nimbly.
