    Default Unit on Bats

    Got this in my email today and thought I would share it with you.


    Bats - Flying mammals often surrounded by mystery and myth. For years,
    bats have been demonized by horror movies and Halloween but the truth
    remains; Bats are important, beneficial animals.

    This Bat unit (Preview Bats!
    <http://www.examiner .com/homeschooli ng-in-denver/ preview-bat- unit-downlo\

    or large. Within the unit, you'll find:

    wonderful creatures of the night

    Learned)
    * Resource list page
    * Megabats vs Microbats page
