 Terrifying Facts About Bats! 

Bat
In the nooks and crannies, the caves and crevices, the dark passages and forgotten corners of our environment and our psyche, there hangs the lone winged mammal on the planet — the bat. An object of fear and disgust to many, these misunderstood creatures are complex, diverse, and vital to our world’s ecosystems. Their reputation as ugly disease-ridden varmints is vastly overblown; but there remains an eerie mystique and inherent fear associated with these fanged, flying guardians of the night. The following are 10 terrifying facts about bats, guaranteed to bring nightmares and goosebumps to even the bravest bat aficionado.

 Batwings are actually flaps of skin

No streamlined feathers, no colorful plumage — the bat relies on flaps of skin stretched over thin, skeleton-like fingers for flight. Believe it or not, this lack of feathers aids in maneuverability, allowing bats to slice through the night sky acrobatically and effortlessly with pin-point accuracy.

Bat eating worm

 Bats have an insatiable hunger

On a good night, by using their sharp teeth to shred food into tiny pieces for easy digestion, bats can consume nearly 50 percent of their own body weight. Large groups, like the aforementioned Bracken Cave colony, can forage and hunt for untold tons of fruit and insects in a single night. But that’s not all they eat…
