Description

How bats use their senses is just one of the thirteen topics in this clearly written look at the two main kinds of bats --- megabats and microbats. Kids find out where bats live, what they eat, how they move and much more. Easy-to-read text and accurate, detailed illustrations meet the research needs of young children and satisfy their curiosity about these unusual mammals.
