Did you know it was Bat Appreciation Week? I didn’t. In some ways, I wish I didn’t know, but as one of God’s creatures, I suppose we should appreciate them at some point. So here are a few bat facts:
- Bats are the only mammals that are capable of true flight.
- Bats make up a quarter of all mammals.
- They have 1 pup a year.
- They can live up to 30 years.
- They can eat 1,200 mosquitos in 1 hour.
- They can live anywhere except polar regions and desert areas.
Did you know you can even Adopt A Bat?
Yeah, I don’t want to either.
