    Bats are very interesting creatures. • Bats are the only mammals that can fly. • Bats generally have one baby per year. • Bats live for 15-25 years. • The smallest bats in Belize are merely 1.5 inches long and weigh 2-3 grams (0.1 oz). • The largest bat in Belize is 6 inches with a 24-inch wingspan and weighs 240 grams (8oz). • Many species of bats share the same roosting areas: caves, cracks in rocks, hollow trees, under bark, under leaves (palms), rolled leaves (banana, heliconia), self-constructed tents, and man-made structures (under roofs).
