This was a great book giving some insight into these flying mammals. And with as many species as their are, somewhere around 1,300 if not more, it's nice to see that this book highlights each one. It starts off with some basic information about these winged mammals: their biology (including anatomy and physiology), history, ecology, and behaviors. As well as a brief look into the reputations they've had over the years.
After that, it gives a brief, but informative synopsis about each bat, where their located, their size and weight, and where they fall on the IUCN (the International Union for Conservation of Nature) as far as how endangered they are. It also includes the different classes that each bat falls under, giving an explanation of what each class entails.
This is a nice culmination of one of the more unique mammals out there and what kinds of bats you can expect around the world. This book can be found in the Adult nonfiction section.
