What's a fishing bat's secret weapon? Radar! This skilled predator can catch and consume up to 30 fish every night.
For bats, smaller prey is usually more manageable.
Fishing bats also use echolocation to direct them.
The sense of sound can guide them so well that they can hear fish surfacing in a pond.
They use that sound...plus echolocation...to time their dive to the exact moment a fish rises close enough to the surface.
In an impressive display of timing and winged agility...the bat skims the water...picking off fish with its long legs and claws.
Using echolocation...and other-worldly hearing...a bat like this one can catch and consume up to 30 fish in a single night.
