Bat biologist Barbara A. Schmidt-French and writer Carol A. Butler offer a compendium of insightful facts about bats in this accessible and expertly written question-and-answer volume. Numbering more than one thousand species in our world today, bats in the wild are generally unthreatening. Like most other mammals, bats are curious, affectionate, and even playful with one another. Highly beneficial animals, bats are critical to global ecological, economic, and public health.
"Do Bats Drink Blood?" illuminates the role bats play in the ecosystem, their complex social behavior, and how they glide through the night sky using their acute hearing - echolocation skills that have helped in the development of navigational aids for the blind. Personal in voice with the perspective of a skilled bat researcher, this book explores wide-ranging topics as well as common questions people have about bats, providing a trove of fascinating facts.
