  • Title: about the year of the bat
    Descriptive info: ambassadors.. resources.. resources from YOB participants and partners.. About Year of the Bat.. This web site is dedicated to the Bat -.. the "incredibly fascinating, delightfully likeable masters of our night skies.. ".. Dr.. Merlin Tuttle.. org.. Ambassador's Message.. Statement by Dr.. Merlin Tuttle regarding Year of the Bat Celebration.. I’m delighted to serve as Honorary Ambassador for the 2011-2012 Year of the Bat campaign and wish the very best of success to all who participate.. Education regarding the essential roles of bats in maintaining healthy ecosystems and human economies has never been more important.. Bats are found nearly everywhere and approximately 1,200 species account for almost a quarter of all mammals.. Nevertheless, in recent decades their populations have declined alarmingly.. Many are now endangered, though they provide invaluable services that we cannot afford to lose.. Simply because they are active only at night and difficult to observe and understand, bats rank among our planet’s most misunderstood and intensely persecuted mammals.. Those that eat insects are primary predators of the vast numbers that fly at night, including ones that cost  ...   the lungs and rain makers of our planet.. Many of the plants which depend on such bats are additionally of great economic value, their products ranging from timber and tequila to fruits, spices, nuts and even natural pesticides.. Scary media stories notwithstanding, bats are remarkably safe allies.. Where I live, in Austin, Texas, 1.. 5 million bats live in crevices beneath a single downtown bridge.. When they began moving in, public health officials warned that they were diseased and dangerous--potential attackers of humans.. Yet, through Bat Conservation International, we educated people to simply not handle them, and 30 years later, not a single person has been attacked or contracted a disease.. Fear has been replaced by love as these bats catch 15 metric tons of insects nightly and attract 12 million tourist dollars each summer.. It is now well demonstrated that people and bats can share even our cities at great mutual benefit.. As we will show through varied Year of the Bat activities, bats are much more than essential.. They’re incredibly fascinating, delightfully likeable masters of our night skies..

  • Title: all about bats
    Descriptive info: facts vs.. myths.. bats and biodiversity.. bats and science.. threats to bats.. All about Bats at one Glance!.. “Bats have always been in my thoughts.. No matter where I am in the world, whenever I see a bat I feel safe, as they are the same as I am: a mammal, but one better, with the ability to fly.. Man, I wish to fly like a bat.. ”.. Maaliq Mitchell, Cairo, Egypt.. All about Bats.. Discover everything there is to know about your favourite winged mammal!.. B.. ats are the only flying mammals.. Like all mammals, they suckle their young until they are fit and ready to forage for themselves.. They have a thin, elastic wing membrane between their fingers and legs that gives them the acrobatic flight capacity.. The scientific name for their wings is Chiroptera which translates to ‘hand wing’.. Such a ‘hand wing’ allows better maneuverability in flight and thus allows bats to be such remarkable flying mammals.. There are more than 1.. 000 bat species around the world, who can be found in every continent except Antarctica.. Lending from their unique wing morphology, bats are classified as either Mega-bats Megachiroptera or Micro-bats Microchiroptera.. Mega-bats are tropical and ‘Old World’ bat species from Africa, Asia and Australia.. They have large wingspans and bodies just like the Golden-Crowned Flying Fox with a 1.. 5 meter wingspan and weighing up to 1.. 2 kilograms.. Mega-bats have fox like faces with long noses, large eyes and/or small ears.. Micro-bats on the other hand, have smaller wingspan and bodies and can be found worldwide.. Unlike Mega-bats, they have diverse and distinct facial features.. Differences between the two classification also extends to their diet with Mega-bats primarily feeding on fruit, flowers and nectar and Micro-bats feeding primarily on insects and other broad and other diverse items.. Bats (except most fruit bats) orientate and hunt by means of a highly sophisticated system of echolocation, emitting high-frequency calls that beyond the range of the human ear.. Most fruit bats, such as the Grey headed flying-fox, have larger eyes and a sharp sense of smell as they find food by sight and smell.. Echolocation helps bats avoid collisions and help locate their prey as calls bounce  ...   abandon their young if this happens.. Babies are suckled by their mothers till they are old enough to fly and they begin to venture out from the roost to forage for food.. Habitat.. • Bats are numerous in the tropics; Indonesia with 175 species, Venezuela with 154 species and Mexico with 137 species.. Central and South America are home to almost one third of the world’s bats.. • Many bat species that occur on islands are found nowhere else in the world and in some places bats are the only native mammals.. • Caves provide shelter for bats.. In temperate areas, bats use caves as breeding sites in summer and hibernation sites in winter.. Although bats don’t need to hibernate in the tropics, caves are still important.. Diet.. • Most bats eat insects, some feed on pollen and nectar whilst others eat fruit.. Few are highly specialized and feed on fish, frogs and even on other bats.. • Some fruit feeding bats feed on fruits of commercial importance to humans.. However they are important for seed dispersal.. Eco-System Services.. • Bats are important pollinators in the tropical forests where some plants flower only at night to attract bats.. • Chewing gum, tequila and sisal are three products of many which come from plants that at least partly rely on bats for pollination or seed dispersal.. • They help control pests as some bats eat half their weight in insects in one night.. Simply fascinating.. • Bats can be as large as a small dog or as small as a bumblebee.. Largest – flying foxes with wingspan of up to 2 metres and weigh 1.. 5 kilograms and bumblebee bat weighing 2 grams.. • Bats are the only group of mammals to exhibit true flight.. • Bats are often clean animals and spent hours grooming.. • Bats are not likely to attack people or pets.. Vampire Bats.. • Vampire bats are small – 7cm to 9cm and take approximately a tablespoon of blood each night.. • Vampire bats are colony orientated with caring for those who cannot feed by regurgitating blood they have collected.. • Stroke victims are said to benefit from studies of a clot-dissolving substance in the vampire bats’ saliva..
