Bats are as fascinating as they are elusive. These flying mammals are masters of stealth, and they’re rarely detected because of their preference for nocturnal activities. But, as quick and as adept at flying as bats are, they have to sleep somewhere. So, where is it that bats go to ‘hang out’, as it were, when they’re not out foraging or hunting?
In this article, we’re exploring the question of where bats live, and we’re looking at the variations among bats when it comes to their habitats, roosting preferences, and colonizing behavior. As it turns out, bats are highly complex animals that have evolved to be very social, and the places they call home might surprise you.
Come along as we definitively answer the question, “Where do bats live?”
