"Most bats are happy to simply snatch a meal in their mouths in midair. But the eastern red bat likes to show off a little bit. This bat species catches its prey by performing a midair somersault and closing its wings and tail around an insect it plans to eat. It digs its head into the makeshift pouch and consumes the insect before flying off again. This high-flying acrobat lives in the forested areas of eastern North America and prefers to eat moths and beetles." - DiscoverMagazine.com

"The coloring of different species of grasshopper are often dependent on environment. Many species are adapted to green fields and forests, and blend in well there to avoid predators. Others have adapted to drier, sandy environments and blend in well with the colors of dry dirt and sand."
Split-nosed bat: This family of bats is also called Horseshoe bats because of the shape of the skin around their noses. They are insect eaters, using their huge ears for echolocation, and their broad wings for particularly agile flight in chasing down their prey.
