You may think that bats look exactly like they do on TV but they don’t. Did you know that bat’s fingers go across the whole wing and still have the same amount of fingers as we do. Their legs are much smaller than the fingers/arms. Their feet are so tiny but they enable the bats to hang upside down and not fall off, so they are pretty cool.
