Did you know that there are over 1000 species of Old World and New World Bats?


Did you know that there are over 1000 species of Old World and New World Bats? This includes the famous Vampire Bat, the tiny Bumble Bee Bat, and the super large Flying Fox Fruit Bats with 6ft wingspans. Bats are extremely important to man in many ways. For example without Fruit Bats many crops around the World would be overrun and infested with Crop Destroying Insects such as Fruit Flies. The reason being is that Fruit Bats primarily eat rotten over ripe fruit that if left alone would not only attract but also promote Insect Infestation. Insectivorous Bats also eat literally tons of Biting Mosquitoes and other insects each and every night. Some species of plants and the majority of Night Blooming Plants would go extinct without Pollen Eating Bats to pollinate them. This includes the famous Saguaro Cactus from the famed Wild West.
