Bats have 1000 of species, they sleep in the daytime and stay active at night. Bats life expectancy is around 20 years. There are three vampire bats species who drink blood to survive and that is where the vampire thing comes from like in the movies such as the Underworld which was released in 2003. Another movie that features bat is the Batman where the hero in the movie uses bats to scare off his enemies. Some bats like to live by themselves while others live in caves with thousands of other bats and they are flying mammals. Most of these bats like to eat insects, fruit and blood. Bats use a special skill called echolocation where they make noise and wait for the echo and if they don’t hear the echo that means they can fly safely in the dark.
