Bats are found on every continent!!!! But not the Arctic. Isn't that amazing!? Bats can eat grasshoppers, moths, butterflies, and sometimes scorpions. If bats have babies, when they go to hunt, they leave the baby in a little nursery with other baby bats and they pack up to keep warm. Do you think that bats are birds? They're mammals. Mammals have fur, and bats have fur. Baby bats live on their mothers' milk. Birds don't have milk. Birds hunt for food for their babies. But bats have their own milk. Bats are NOT birds, they are mammals. Homes for bats are bushes, caves, barns, and fenceposts. Have you been to Moody Gardens? Well, there's this little rainforest thing, and if you make it through it, you can see bats. Mom doesn't really know about the bats. And she didn't like it when she saw the vampire bat. I saw it eating blood. Bats are pretty cool!
