Fast Facts: Bats (Part 6)

Welcome to Fast Facts with Reasons for Hope!

I’m Carl Kerby.

In this, our last “batisode,” let me just pepper you with a lot of fun facts.

Like butterflies, bats live on every continent on our planet except … Antarctica!

Some bats get a drink of water while flying!! 

Bats typically live for around 20 years.

They usually sleep during the day, but while “hanging out,” (get it?) they’ll socialize and groom each other.

Most bats roost by hanging from their toes, which lock into place because of their weight.  This way, they can fall asleep and not fall! 

Female bats even give birth while hanging upside down! 

Some bats have tiny suction cups on their wrist and feet to grip leaves and stems of plants.

The bats knees bend “backward” when compared to other mammals. 

Fact is … God sure did a good job on these amazing animals, but our time’s up.   Join us for the next Fast Facts with Reasons for Hope. Until then, stay bold!
