Found Little Brown Bat


A bat was found resting on a high chair at the balcony. Amelia was excited to see the little brown bat. This is her first time to see a bat so close. She took out her Children's Animal Encyclopedia book to read about bats.

Amelia learnt that bats are the only mammals that can fly. There are about 1000 species of bats. A bat has powerful chest muscles which it uses to flap its wing. it steers by moving the bones in its fingers and legs to change the wing's shape.

A bat has large ears to collect sounds in the dark and to find its prey. This is called echolocation. A bat can make very high pitched sounds. These sounds hit an object and an echo comes back. A bat can tell where and the size of the object by listening to the echo.

The bat found at the balcony is well known as little brown bat. The bat normally actives during the night and sleeps during the day. It hangs upside down using its feet from the walls of caves, buldings and trees. This action is called roosting.

We contacted The RSPCA and The Bats Conservation Trust for help. They said a bat cannot fly from flat surface and suspect the bat is injured. They advised to put a cloth and water in a bottle lid in a box for the bat. Do not touch the bat with bare hands.
