In Debbie Dean’s article “Bats”, we assimilate that bats are not infectious, rabies carrying rodents, but are in fact, an unacknowledged benefit to our ecosystem. Bats are unique when it comes to their physical and sensory attributes. They have a skeletal system that is similar in structure to humans, thus debunking the myth that bats are rodents with wings. Since most bats can not see color, bats use the process of echolocation to navigate through the night, and in areas that are ill-lit. With over a thousand species of bat differing in size, it is not surprising that most have distinct diets, and perform valuable functions. Bats that most commonly have a diet of insects, help eliminate pests and potentially harmful insect, including mosquitos.
