[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Bats are the only mammals able to fly.Their wings are delicate membranes stretched across their arms and fingers. Most bats have poor eye sight and find their way around by echolocation, similar to the sonar of ships and submarines.They have large and sensitive ears.Usually sleep during the day hanging upside down in caves or quite places.Many bats eat fruit and nectar, some eat small insects and a few are even blood suckers.There are almost one thousand different types of bats.
