Bats Use Leaves As Mirrors To Find Camouflaged Insects

Bats are widely misunderstood creatures in the animal kingdom - while they're associated with witches, vampires and darkness in general, they're actually super cute and interesting. And scientists have just discovered something amazing about them - bats use leaves as "mirrors" that reflect sound waves, helping them find insects hiding behind leaves. Cool, right? Or confusing? Keep on reading, we'll explain everything.

Everyone loves Adele, right? With her dulcet tones, she’s captured the hearts of millions of fans worldwide, and they’re not all human.

At her concert in Mexico City on Tuesday night, Adele met the welcoming committee: A bat.

The bat, who’s probably just a huge fan that got a little too excited, fluttered around the concert hall and totally freaked out the “In the Deep” singer. Upon seeing said bat, the Grammy award-winning superstar began flapping her arms as if to mimic the flight of the bat and spinning in circles. She seemed scared.

“Oh my god,” she said. “There’s a f****** bat.”

In the end, Adele, who seemed a little shaken at first warmed up to her new fan and laughed it off.

But this is no laughing matter. Bats are dangerous, they are scary, they turn into vampires, and we should all respect their awesome power. Ok, Adele?

It began as any other day for Michael Connor, until he found a bat stuck in his toilet bowl.

Any other person would have turned, ran and hired someone to burn the house down.

But Connor rolled up his sleeves and rescued the little guy.
