Bat Fun Facts:
Bats can live more than 30 years and can fly at speeds of up to 60 mph.
Many bats eat insects. Bats can eat up to 1,200 mosquitoes in an hour and often consume their body weight in insects every night, helping keep bug populations in check.
Some bats migrate south for the winter, while others hibernate through the cold winter months.
Bat droppings, called guano, are one of the richest fertilizers. Bat guano was once a big business. Guano was Texas's largest mineral export before oil!
