Image: Bats: An Illustrated Guide to All Species | Hardcover: 400 pages | by Marianne Taylor (Author), Merlin Tuttle (Photographer). Publisher: Smithsonian Books; Illustrated edition (April 9, 2019)National Bat Day
-- This is a fitting time for Bat Appreciation Day, as many bats are waking up from hibernation around this time of year. Bats living in the Northern Hemisphere will migrate south for the winter. Most bats prefer to live in warmer areas, near the equator. But bats live almost everywhere, except for a few islands, as well as in Antarctica and the Arctic. These scary creatures have an extremely important role in our environment, managing insect populations and pollinating plants. In fact, in just one hour, a bat can eat up to 1,000 mosquitoes!

Read: Bats: An Illustrated Guide to All Species
-- Explores bats and their fundamental role in our ecosystems through lavish full-color photographs and lively narrative. From the Giant Golden-Crowned Flying Fox, a megabat with a wingspan of more than five feet, to the aptly named Bumblebee Bat, the world's smallest mammal, the number and diversity of bat species have proven to be both rich and underestimated. Nocturnal, fast-flying, and secretive, bats are difficult to observe and catalog. This richly illustrated handbook presents bats' evolution, biology, behavior, and ecology.
