Bat Appreciation Day - April 17

April 17 celebrates the tribute to the bats. This is the time when bats come out of their winter sleep state and therefore the time to learn about the roles of bats in the wild.
One of the reasons to celebrate Bat Day is their help in humans to get rid of annoying insects. A bat can eat up to 1,000 mosquitoes in one hour.
It is said that the global Corona plague that broke out in December 2019 in Wuhan, China and continues to this day, is the result of eating bats infected with the SARS-COV-2 virus. To the extent that this is true, the bats cannot be blamed because they should not have been eaten in the first place. There is enough other food and the bats should be allowed to live in peace in their areas without harming them.

Fun facts about bats:
There are species of bats that can live up to 40 years.
Bats can see in the dark and are able to hear much higher frequencies than humans.
The bat is the only mammal that can fly for a long time naturally.
There are over 1200 known species of bats.

The largest bat in the world is the flying fox bat, whose wingspan reaches 1.70 meters. He lives in Cambodia, Vietnam, southern China and Thailand.
The United States is home to 48 estimated species of bats.
About 70% of the bats are insectivores.
Bats are very clean animals, they clean themselves almost all the time.

April 17 is also Blah blah blah Day
