There are many types of bats living mostly in warm climates. Bats are the only mammals that can fly. Bats sleep during the day, and come out at night in search of food. Bats use echolocation, or the ability to listen to sounds bouncing off objects, to help guide them in the dark and to find food.

Many bats live in caves where they are sheltered from light during the day. They hang upside down hooking their feet into cracks in the roof of a cave or hollow tree.
