1 Collective Nouns For Bats
Bats are mammals of the order Chiroptera (; from the Ancient Greek: χείρ – cheir, "hand" and Ancient Greek: πτερόν – pteron, "wing") whose forelimbs form webbed wings, making them the only mammals naturally capable of true and sustained flight.
By contrast, other mammals said to fly, such as flying squirrels, gliding possums, and colugos, can only glide for short distances.
Bats are less efficient at flying than birds, but are more manoeuvrable, using their very long spread-out digits which are covered with a thin membrane or patagium.
