Since its first publication in 1988, America's Neighborhood Bats has changed the way we look at bats by underscoring their harmless and beneficial nature. In this second revised edition, Merlin Tuttle offers bat aficionados the most up-to-date bat facts, including a wealth of new information on bat house design and current threats to bat survival.
From reviews of previous editions: "An excellent primer about these fascinating animals. Highly recommended." Wildlife Book Review "Something very good in a small package: a natural history and practical ecology of the flying mammals that, next to wolves, must be the most unjustly persecuted creatures on earth... The colour photos and line drawings that profusely illustrate are top quality." ALA Booklist "These breathtaking photographs depict bats as startlingly beautiful creatures. The combination of excellent photography and enlightening text in America's Neighborhood Bats is sure to stimulate an appreciation of the winged mammals in most--if not all--readers." Wildlife Review
