Bats at Halloween
Bats are often associated with Halloween. They are spooky, mysterious creatures that come out at night. And while they might be a little scary, they are also really cool!
Did you know that bats are the only mammals that can fly? That’s pretty amazing! There are over 1,200 species of bats in the world, and they can be found on every continent except for Antarctica.
Bats are important animals because they help to control the insect population. Some bats eat up to 1,000 mosquitoes in a single night! So if you see a bat next time you’re out at dusk, give it a thank you for all the good it does.
