Brainy bats:  strategies for finding food in the jungle at night

 

Speaker:  Claire Hemingway

 

Bats are remarkable in their diversity.  Over 1,300 species of bats can be found in every continent, except Antarctica.  Because many bats have to find their food at night, they have evolved a whole suite of different hunting strategies.  The brains of these impressive animals have been shaped for a long time to allow bats to find and remember where food is.

 

 

Program will be held indoors if inclement weather or noise outside does not allow for a comfortable experience outside.
