Presentation 1: I Don’t Really Want to Suck Your Blood: Exploring the World of Bats

By Cylita Guy, PhD student in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Toronto.

Have you ever heard that all bats want to suck your blood? Or that they’re blind, flying rats that get stuck in your hair? These myths are far from true, but continue to give bats a bad rep. As one of the most species rich group of mammals, bats are truly fascinating creatures. From species that can use the calls of their prey to tell if it’s toxic, to moms that carry babies 20% of their body weight, the diversity of ways bats live their lives is absolutely mind blowing. Join us as we discuss the wonderful world of bats, dispelling myths and sharing how their biology not only makes them unique, but a benefit to humans.
