During the cold winter, some bats migrate to a warmer area. Some bats (like the brown bat) hibernate during the cold of winter, sleeping very deeply until warm weather arrives.
Anatomy: Bat's wings are long fingers covered by thin skin. They have furry bodies. Some bats have short tails, other have no tail. Bats have weak legs and don't walk very well. The smallest bat is the bumblebee bat (with a wingspan of 6 inches=15 cm, weighing less than a penny); the biggest bat is the flying fox bat (with a wingspan of 6 feet=1.8 m, weighing 2 pounds=1 kg).
Senses/Diet: Bats can see, but do not use this as their primary sense.
There are two types of bats that differ in their diet and in the way they sense and obtain food. Bats are divided into:
