Bats are not flying mice; they are not even remotely related to rodents. Bats are so unique that scientists have put them in a group, called ‘Chiroptera, which means the arm. Bats are not blind. Most bats can see as well as humans. Fruit bats have eyesight adapted to low light, just like cats. Fruit bats also see color.
Bats do not attempt to become tangled in hair. In fact, insect-eating bats are equipped with an integrated sonar system that allows them to move at breakneck speeds through complete darkness. Their unique echolocation capabilities are thousands of times more effective than any similar man-made system. If a bat flies towards you, it’s probably after the mosquito is hovering right above your head – not your hair
