I created this website to popularize scientific knowledge about bats. Navigate through the main sections to  find out more about those amazing animals: About Bats, Bats in the Press and Resources for Scientists.

There is also a special section for people who have trouble with bats.

See some nice pictures in the bat album.

Visit also the Brazilian Bat Research Society!
