Eastern Red Bat by Anant

  1. 1. Eastern red bat by Anant
  2. 2. Habitat <ul><li>The Eastern Red Bat, known as the “north </li></ul><ul><li>American tree bat”,lives around wherever there </li></ul><ul><li>Are trees east of the rocky mountains from </li></ul><ul><li>Canada all the way to central Florida!!! </li></ul><ul><li>They also sometimes live on Evergreen Trees. </li></ul><ul><li>They are able to fully camouflage with there </li></ul><ul><li>Surroundings because there skins red colour </li></ul><ul><li>Matches with pine cones and dead leafs </li></ul>
  3. 3. Bats sonar- <ul><li>A bat's sonar is a part of there body that helps </li></ul><ul><li>them detect little objects around them. </li></ul><ul><li>It sends out an echo-wave and if there is an </li></ul><ul><li>object in front of them the wave will come back </li></ul><ul><li>to him. Due to the slight differences the bat can </li></ul><ul><li>detect the size, shape and area of the object </li></ul><ul><li>below them. </li></ul>
  4. 5. North American Eastern Red Bat range
  5. 6. Food <ul><li>The eastern red bat mostly eats moths, beetles </li></ul><ul><li>, worms,leaf hoppers, </li></ul>
  6. 7. Breeding <ul><li>During the day hold on to their mothers with one foot and on to a perch with the other. Mothers leave their young alone at night when they go out to feed, but if necessary, they will move them to new locations. Pups begin flying at three to four weeks and are weaned only a few weeks later. In the summertime red bats are among the earliest evening fliers, typically feeding around forest edges, in clearings, or around street-lights where they consume predominantly moths. </li></ul>
  7. 8. Predators <ul><li>Natural enemies of the red bat are blue jays, hawks, owls and other predators that inhabit and forage in trees. Owls are one of the main predators of eastern red bats. </li></ul>
  8. 9. Range <ul><li>Red bats are migratory, spending summers throughout Kansas and wintering to the east and south, and remain active all winter. They arrive in Kansas as early as mid-March (April in northern Kansas), and are common in deciduous forests throughout the eastern half of the state, but less so in the western half, where they live in riparian forests along water courses. </li></ul>
  9. 10. Hibernation and Migration <ul><li>Bats migrate into caves during the winter </li></ul><ul><li>Because there food source is low. All insects have died due to the cold. The eastern red bat </li></ul><ul><li>Migrates into caves like lots of other species. </li></ul>
  10. 11. Extras~ <ul><li>They are known to survive body temperatures as low as 23 degrees F. Their long, silky fur provides extra protection from severe cold, and they also use their heavily furred tail membrane like a blanket, wrapping themselves up almost completely. While in hibernation, red bats respond to subfreezing temperatures by raising their metabolic rate to maintain a body temperature above their critical lower survival limit. </li></ul>
