Bats

Wild - - WANT TO WORK WITH WILDLIFE -

Le­gend has it that vam­pires can turn into bats and dis­ap­pear in the night. Wah-ha-ha! No won­der peo­ple think bats are vi­cious crea­tures. But they’re not! And they cer­tainly don’t want to snack on you; they’d pre­fer in­sects in­stead. Each night, bats chow down on thou­sands of in­sects. When it comes to feed­ing, Cana­dian bats will eat night-fly­ing in­sects like moths, wasps, ants, flies, bee­tles, gnats, mos­qui­toes, midges and mayflies — al­though some bats do have their favourite snacks! The Big Brown Bat re­ally loves feed­ing on bee­tles, and the Hoary Bat mainly sticks to moths.
