I look like no other European bat, for I am entirely black.
Like all bats however, I am a mammal that lives by night. This is when I come out hunting for my favourite prey: moths. To find these preys when there isn’t any light, I have a tremendous weapon: echolocation. This process consists of very rapidly emitting cries which will bounce off objects around me, and come back to my ears in the form of an echo. This way I can build a very precise sonic picture of my environment, to the point that I am able to catch a mosquito in flight! With such a precise navigation instrument, it’s no surprise that contrary to legend no bat will ever get tangled in anyone’s hair!
My species lives predominantly on the edge of old forests, and like other bats our numbers are decreasing. Insecticides used in agriculture and at home are killing the preys I hunt for food. That’s why my vote goes to Organic farming!
