Science on Tap – The Incredible World of Bats
November 15, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$5 – $10
We’re exploring the space where science and culture intersect, and we’re doing it over drinks.
Bats comprise a fifth of all mammals. They come in an incredible variety, as cute as any panda or as strange as any dinosaur, from tiny bats that live in beetle holes in bamboo to giant flying foxes with six-foot wingspans.
They’re found nearly everywhere, are primary seed dispersers from deserts to rainforests, pollinate some of the world’s most valuable crops, and save American farmers billions of dollars annually in avoided pesticide use.
They maintain long-term social relationships similar to those of humans, elephants, and dolphins, share information, and even adopt orphans.
See Dr. Tuttle’s stunning photographs showing bats courting mates, living in pitcher plants and termite nests, pollinating an amazing variety of flowers, fishing, catching frogs and insects, and much more during this dynamic evening lecture!
