SCIENCE WORD OF THE WEEK!
We’re revisiting the Science Word of the Week this time just in time for International Bat Day on Friday! Who knows how insect eating bats locate their prey? Come find out!
Echolocation is the location of an object or prey using sound to reflect off that object to determine distance, size and shape. Bat can determine an object as thin and fine as human hair using their echolocation.
This is what Big Brown Bat’s sonar sounds like here! Human ears can not hear these frequencies normally! Ellie and Edmond will talk more about bat echolocation as they introduce a few cool species of these flying mammals!
