Bat species number over 1,100 worldwide, including tiny insectivores and fruit-eaters of all sizes, most of which are important pollinators. Seemingly shrouded in mystery and curious misconceptions, bats capture our imaginations and elicit our interest as much or more than any other group of mammals on the planet.  Beautiful illustrations, range maps, identification tips, and natural history information accompany each featured species. The rest of this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is dedicated to the evolution, behavior, habitats, and survival of bats as well as handy tips for what to do when encountering a bat and how each of us can conserve and protect these remarkable creatures. Laminated for use in all conditions, this guide is a terrific resource for educators, learners, naturalists, and wildlife enthusiasts. Made in the USA.
