AJHQ+A: Bats!

Daredevil Rowdymaster asks Dr. Brady Barr, “Are bats the only mammals that can fly?”

 

Bats are divided in two main categories, MEGABATS and MICROBATS. The main difference between the bats is the megabats don’t use ECHOLOCATION, this means they don’t use sound waves to help them find their dinner. Microbats do use echolocation.

 

Microbats are also very small – the smallest bat only weighs between 3.5 and 5 grams. That’s only about 5 paperclips! And the smallest microbat is only about 1.5 inches (4 cm) long, that’s about half the length of your dad’s thumb! Their diet is mostly insects that they catch during the evening.

 

Megabats are much larger, they weigh about 3.5 pounds (1.6 kg) and can be about 5 feet (1.5 m) in length. That might be taller than you! They eat fruit, pollen, and nectar in the dawn hours.

 

Can you think of any other animals that use echolocation?

You’d be surprised by how many animals use echolocation. You might already know that mammals like bats, dolphins, and whales use it to navigate and find food. But did you know that some birds and even rodents use echolocation?

AJ ACADEMY – Koala

!aja_koala

Though they are sometimes called koala bears, koalas are not related to bears at all. Their closest relative are wombats, which are also not related to bears. Koalas got this nickname because their faces and soft fur sometimes make them resemble teddy bears.
