Burn Cycle 2

There was a post that I read and I can personally relate that I was so much interested in.Joanna Whitter<Charles Best>post on 'Can bats see?' I really researched on it an found that Bats hunt in the dark using echolocation, meaning they use echoes of self-produced sounds bouncing off objects to help them navigate. But that doesn't mean that bats can't see.Well, bats aren't almost blind.

Apart from poorer color vision, their visual acuity is pretty similar to ours.Bats have small eyes with very sensitive vision, which helps them see in conditions we might consider pitch black. They don't have the sharp and colorful vision humans have, but they don't need that.Bats Are Not Blind. The truth is that a lot of bats species can see and often their vision is pretty good, although not as excellent as many other night-hunting animals. ...

They actually rely on their daylight vision and cannot fly during moonless nights.Bats are largely nocturnal, meaning they are most active after sundown. Specifically, little brown bats emerge from their dark roosts two-to-three hours after dusk to feed.

I really enjoyed reading the post and thanks for sharing your work!

Hey Dorcas,

I loved this little tidbit of research! I remember looking into this topic myself as I, like yourself, had been very interested in it. I liked that you bolded the important words, that was very impactful. This actually inspired me to go back and reread what I had previously written, too, haha.

Keep up the good work! Maybe if you're interested, you could do a research cycle on bats, their routines, their lifestyles, and their habits. If you choose to do so, here are a couple of sites you could use:
https://defenders.org/bats/basic-facts
https://askdruniverse.wsu.edu/.../02/04/fuzzy-fliers/

Looking forward to reading more of what you find
Joanna

Hello @Dorcas Akinyi (Sweetwaters)

It has been a while to see another burn from someone else than me making one! This is pretty interesting. A topic I remember reading about a while back. 
It's super cool to see what you learned as well from this research  

The burn gave me a refresher as to what the research was about and it helped a lot when you did that! 

These are interactive websites on bats themselves, its possible you could check them out when you have the time!
