Bats are part of the order of chiropterans. They’re the only mammals that can fly. Too often, the victims of false beliefs, bats are judged and hunted. Yet they are harmless animals.
Bats play a vital role in the ecological balance. Indeed, about 70% of the world’s bats are insectivorous. Other species act as pollinators, while some are frugivorous and will scatter seeds throughout different ecosystems.

Like any mammal, the bat embryo develops inside the female’s body. The female has udders to nurse her young. Already at birth, the young are provided with milk teeth (milk teeth), and later, permanent teeth (adult teeth) emerge.
Bats, like us, have lungs, a 4-chambered heart, and, contrary to some beliefs, they have good vision, even if they use echolocation for their movements and to find their food.

Chiroptera, the scientific name for bats, literally means “hand-wing”. Indeed, it is interesting to note that bats have the same bones in their forelimbs as we do. It is only the size and arrangement that differ.
Bats are endothermic organisms, i.e., they produce their heat by burning fat reserves. Bats are also able to vary their body temperature according to the environment in which they live; they are called heterothermic mammals.
This is why bats hibernate in winter. They lower their body temperature to near freezing, between 3ºC and 6ºC. Bats have a membrane between the bones of their forelegs called a patagium or wing membrane.
This membrane has different sections and extends to the tail, forming the uropatagium. The patagium provides a higher lift in flight and can be used as a net for catching insects.
