In The Dark About How Bats Hunt At Night? Our Fun Echolocation Game Will Help You Figure It Out!

  Echolocation is a process in which sound waves and echoes are used to determine where various objects are in a given space. Bats use echolocation to navigate and find food when it is dark outside. Bats produce soundwaves out of their mouths or noses. These sound waves hit nearby objects and bounce back to […]

Are Bats Really Blind?

Academics / General Science : Live Science

Bats hunt in the dark using echolocation, meaning they use echoes of self-produced sounds bouncing off objects to help them navigate. But that doesn't mean that bats can't see.
