Bats

Look! What kind of animal is that hanging upside down?

It's a bat!

Bats are amazing.

Bats are not birds. They are mammals. They are the only mammals that can fly.

Did you know that there are more than 900 kinds of bats?

Bats live all over the world. The only place bats do not live is in Antarctica.

Bats sleep during the day. They hunt for food at night. Some bats eat fruit. Other bats eat bugs.
