The Kid Should See This

Whispering, Walking Bats Are Onto Something

Bats have a brilliant way to find prey in the dark: echolocation. But to many of the moths they eat, that natural sonar is as loud as a jet engine. So some bats have hit on a sneakier, scrappier way to hunt.

See how these adorable bats are using their ears and their pouncing skills to catch prey on the ground. KQED and PBS Digital Studios’ series Deep Look investigates: These Whispering, Walking Bats Are Onto Something.

There are more bats in the archives, including filming bats with slow motion & thermal cameras and Baby Bat Burritos at the Australian Bat Clinic.

Plus, more hunting and food chain vids.
