2. Bats can find their food in total darkness.
There really is a reason why they come out at night: Bats don't need their eyes! They locate insects by emitting high-pitched sounds (inaudible to humans) and listen for the echoes. African heart-nosed bats can hear the footsteps of a beetle walking on sand from a distance of more than six feet—no light needed!
