Bats are a kind of bird and found all around the world. There are hundreds of different species of bat, living in caves and forests, particularly in Asia such just in Thailand and Cambodia. Some species of bat are known to fly at strong heights, sometimes up to 3km above the ground. The bats senses are so fine tuned that it is thought that some bats can hear footsteps 9km away. They are helpful and the world would be a harder and worse without them but are being killed by people placing bat boxes in places where predators may be and wind meals drowning their echolocation. They have a good point, a slight sixth sense known as echolocation. It means that It creates a series of supersonic sounds, which it uses to locate prey by the sounds that are reflected back to them. They can find food only at night, and their food is a kind of fruits. They cannot go outside during sunrise.
