    Ghost Bat Bats are mammals 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 do not flap their entire forelimbs, as birds do, but instead flap their spread-out digits, which are very long and covered with a thin membrane or patagium.

Ghost bat (Macroderma gigas), also known as the false vampire bat is native to Australia. Named for the extremely thin membrane of its wings that makes it appear ghostly at night. They have grey fur on their backs and pale grey or white fur on their undersides. They have long, narrow wings, but no tail, averaging 4.3" in length. They have large ears for long distance hearing, and very sharp teeth so they can attack prey.

Normally, I hate bats. Flapping, rabid little fuckers. But I could learn to love these guys.

Bats are not flying mice; they are not even remotely related to rodents. Bats are such unique animals that scientists have placed them in a group all their own, called ‘Chiroptera’ - meaning their hands are also wings.
