Anatomy of a Bat
Body - the bat's body is covered with fur.
Ears - bats have large external ears and good hearing. Carnivorous (meat-eating) bats have larger ears than herbivorous (plant-eating) bats; meat-eaters also have echolocation abilities.
Eyes - bats have good eyesight and can see very well in the dark (the saying "blind as a bat" is silly).
Five-toed feet - bats have two, five-toed feet and short legs with knees. Bats sleep hanging upside down, hanging by claws on their toes.
Nose - most bats have a good sense of smell.
Uropatagium - the flap of skin between the bat's hind legs and the tail.
Wings - the wings are covered with leathery skin (called the patagium) and are powered by large muscles in the body. Bats are the only flying mammal.
