Publisher Comments:

This book introduces young readers to fisherman bats, the nocturnal fish-eating bats from the family Noctilionae that are also known as Bulldog bats. Easy-to-read text examines fisherman bats' biology, sizes, behaviors, and dietary needs, and reproduction and pup development are introduced. An anatomy diagram helps readers identify body parts, and an echolocation diagram shows how these fishing bats make a catch! Also covered is the bats' habitat, and a detailed map shows where in the world the bats live. Readers will learn about threats to the bats including predation and environmental issues. Bolded glossary terms, phonetic spellings, and an index enhance readability for young chiropterologists. Checkerboard Library is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
