Green Quiz: Bats! Not So Spooky...

Bat Conservation International

Stories like Dracula have given bats a bad rep. The truth is, humans would be lost without these nocturnal mammals: they eat the bugs that would otherwise ruin our crops and they serve as pollinators, especially in precious rainforests. Even the very few bats that drink blood contain a chemical that is helping doctors treat stroke victims! Do you know the answer to our bat quiz?

Of the more than 1,200 species of bats, how many feed on the blood of animals (ie, how many are Vampires)?

A. 3

B. 13         

C. 23

D. 33

The correct answer is A. 3. Congrats to our green quiz winners Teresa Lewis, Stephen H., and Katy Preston!
