Part of Flight Week

Yesterday we were finding out about the history of human flight - today its all about bats - the only mammals capable of continued flight. Some mammals can glide - such as in the rainforest where the trees are very high, and it is easier to jump and glide from tree to tree. Only bats can actually fly!

Have you ever seen a bat flying around your neighbourhood? They are very fast and can be difficult to spot.

They live in all sorts of places - attics of churches and old buildings, hollows of trees, bat boxes and tiny spaces in walls.
