      Bats are among the more interesting of the creatures in this world. Bats are animals that fly like birds, mostly at night. They are usually black or brown in color. And their wings look sort of like human hands with skin between the fingers. Bats live a long time, sometimes 30 or 40 years. They live in places like caves, buildings, and under bridges. When they aren’t flying, they hang upside down because their bodies aren’t shaped right for standing up. Bats can be as small as 6 inches or as large as 6 feet with their wings open. Bats eat lots of different things such as insects, moths, and fruit. Some even eat fish or frogs!  Bats are fascinating creatures.
