Bats are not rats with wings, flying mice or any other rodent. They are mammals, and they are the only mammal that can fly. Bats are classified as Chiropterans, which means hand wing, as the bat’s wings have very similar bone and muscle structure as a human hand.
Bats have a remarkable way of finding food and getting around in the dark. They make a very loud sound, although because of the frequency we can’t hear it, that goes out into the night, then reflects off insects back to them. This is called echolocation and it creates a view of the world in front of them. With echolocation they can identify everything, from trees to insects.
Almost all bats in the United States feed on insects. A few bats in the southwest feed on plant pollen, nectar and fruit.
Bats found in the United States are generally small with wingspans of less than a foot. They often weigh less than an ounce and many are even smaller than that.
