Bats

Some fun facts about bats....

Bats are the only mammals that can fly.  They are also among the only mammals known to feed on blood, although there are only three species of bat that do so and they all live in Central and South America.

There are more than 900 species of bats in the world with some experts estimating the number to be much higher.  According to Bat Conservation International, bats make up one-fifth of the mammal population on Earth.

The Little Brown Bat [Myotis lucifugus] is a species of the genus Myotis, meaning mouse-eared.  It is one of the most common bats of North America.

As indicated by its name, the Little Brown Bat is a dark brown colour.  The ears are short, rounded and black.  The overall body size ranges from 2.5 to 4 inches.  It weighs no more than half an ounce.  When its wings are outstretched, it can be up to 11 inches wide.

Did you know...

that bats sleep and groom themselves during the day?  They are active and hunting during the night.

Did you also know...

that bats can have a hibernation cycle that can last from four to six months!?

 

Bat Houses

Bats are unrivaled for controlling pests like mosquitoes.  70% of bat species are insectivores, feeding solely on insects.  In fact, some bats can catch more than 600 mosquitoes in an hour.  That's why people like having them around.  One way to attract them is to build them a house.

Bat houses are wide, tall and relatively flat.  They have a landing pad at the bottom and are fully open on the underside.

We Are All God's
Creatures

 

 

 

 

"If all the beasts 
were gone,
 men would die from 
a great loneliness 
of spirit, 
for whatever happens 
to the beasts 
also happens to the man.  
All things are connected.  Whatever befalls 
the Earth 
befalls the sons 
of the Earth."

~ Chief Seattle 
of the Suquamish Tribe,
 letter to 
President 
Franklin Pierce ~

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Life is as dear 
to a mute creature 
as it is to man.  
Just as one wants happiness 
and fears pain, 
just as one wants 
to live 
and not die, 
so do other creatures."

~ His Holiness 
The Dalai Lama ~

 

 

 

"If you have men 
who will exclude 
any of God's creatures 
from the shelter 
of compassion and pity, 
you will have men 
who will deal likewise 
with their fellow men."

~ St. Francis of Assisi ~

 

 

 

 

"The worst sin 
towards our fellow creatures 
is not to hate them,
 but to be indifferent to them.  that's the essence 
of inhumanity."

~ George Bernard 
Shaw ~

 

 

"A bird does not sing 
because it has an answer. 
 It sings because 
it has a song."

~ Chinese Proverb ~
