Alaska and Bats, Oh My! It's the Bat Lady!

"Bat" for another session, with even more "batty" information, we host The Bat Lady, Kristen Lear, to learn about the five Alaskan bats, check out adaptations of the over 1,400 species of bats, and ask lots of questions about what makes bats unique. Did you know bats are the only true flying mammal? This and other amazing facts along with incredible visuals in photos and videos, guide us to understand a bit more about why bats are SO important to our world and so exciting to learn about!
