Interesting facts about bats



Hat Tips: navypatriot and Suzanne Eovaldi

This is very timely: the latest newsletter from The Texas Gardener' Seeds said: Put up a bat house to encourage the presence of these shy animals. 

Bats consume 3,000 or more mosquitoes and other insects nightly, and bats are less likely to be rabid than dogs are. 

Need another reason? Bats are responsible for up to 95 percent of the seed dispersal essential to the regeneration of forests.

Sucker-footed bat



 
Red-winged Fruit bat
 
Left-wing Ding bat
