Bat Bat

Bats play an essential role in the balance of nature--eating millions of insect pests nightly and pollinating hundreds of different types of plants. Yet unfounded superstitions and fear, plus the destruction of their habitats, are endangering many species of bats the world over.

Focusing on Tad, a Mexican free-tailed bat, this engaging photo essay examines a unique group of winged mammals. the clear text and forty up-close full-color photographs highlight bats' unusual physical characteristics and present a fascinating view of their day-to-day life and behavior.

Bat is an informative--and informed--view of these amazing night fliers.
