Did You Know?
Many people think bats are blind. That’s just not true! Bats can see perfectly fine, thank you very much. However, at night when they are most active, they use echolocation to make their way around. The clicking noises bats make bounce off the things around them, helping them to search for tasty bugs and fly without bumping into anything.
When the days get crisp and cool in the fall, the Little Brown Bat starts to prepare for hibernation by eating more and increasing their pudge by 30 per cent. Little Brown Bats give birth to a single pup a year. It is born in the summer, usually in June or July.
The Little Brown Bat can eat half its body weight in a single night. That’s more than 1,000 insects!
Little Brown Bat pups start flying at a very early age — as young as three weeks old.
