Bats are so-called hand-winged mammals. They do not have normal wings but a membrane between the fingers of their front and back legs and the tail. The smallest species weigh only a few grams and have a wingspan of no more than 15 cm. But there are also species with a wingspan of up to 170 cm. These also weigh more than a kilo. They do not occur in the Netherlands. Bats live off insects and fruit. They hunt at dusk and at night. In the winter, they look for a safe, preferably cool place, such as caves, cellars, bunkers, forts and tree cavities. There, they hibernate. There are around 21 species in the Netherlands. The most well known are the common pipistrelle, the robin, the late flyer, the great-eared bat and the water bat.
Bats are protected animals in the European Union. As their habitats are becoming less and less good, special measures are taken, such as the installation of bat boxes.
