About the Bat

Bats are a species of the order Chiroptera, which includes the suborders Noctilionoidea (the “true” bats), Megachiroptera (the “megabats”), and Microchiroptera (the “microbats”.) Bats are characterized by a narrow snout, large ears, and a long tongue.

Bats are important in human culture. They have used them as indicators of weather. They use echolocation to find food and navigate their surroundings. There are more than 1,300 species of bats worldwide.

Bats have been hunted for their meat, a practice that still goes on today in many countries. In the United States, some bat species are endangered because they are popular game species.

A fossilized bat appears in the “Handbook of Texas” after having been found in Caddo County, Texas by Daris Swindler. It was found next to a turtle and was dated to the Irvingtonian stage at 11.6 to 11 million years old.
