Bats, Glorious Bats!
Interview with a Big Brown Bat
Bats are amazing creatures! They are the only mammals that can fly, they pollinate some of our favorite fruits, and they are important to the Sonoran Desert ecosystem and ecosystems around the world. Join Nicole as she interviews her friend, the big brown bat, and learns more about these incredible animals.
