Do bats have a nest?

Bats do not build nests; instead, when at rest most species cling to walls and ceilings of caves and to rafters of buildings using their hind feet. Their wings are folded next to the body. Bats that roost in small crevices commonly assume a horizontal posture.

Consequently, how does a bat sleep?

Bats roost, or perch, upside-down for several reasons. If sleeping bats need to escape quickly, hanging upside-down means they are already in the perfect position to spread their wings and fly away. Hanging upside-down is a great way for bats to hide from predators and danger, too.

What bats like to do?

Most bats eat flowers, small insects, fruits, nectar, pollen and leaves, though it depends on the type of bat. Megabats usually eat fruits, and microbats generally eat insects. Vampire bats like a juice of a different type, though.

Do bats have babies?

Some species are flying and hunting on their own within a month of birth. Bats, like people, usually only have one baby at a time although on occasion they'll have twins. Pups are born without hair -- they look tiny, scrawny and pink. They drink milk from their mothers like all mammals do.
