Did you know bats are the only mammal that can fly? There probably are many things you don’t know about bats because they are rarely seen and often misunderstood.
One bat fact Tallahassee residents should all appreciate is their ability to eat 3,000 mosquitoes in one night!
If you want a glimpse of this mysterious mammal, check out the bat house – which houses up to 40,000 bats – on the new Centre of Tallahassee’s east side. Plan to go near sunset, when the bats start out for their evening hunt. For more information, visit the Florida Bat Conservancy’s website.
