Long-Tongued Bat

long tongued batCheck out that tongue!
The Long-tongued Bat from southwestern California has quite a little tool in its tongue. While insects make up part of this bat’s diet, it mostly uses its long tongue to sip nectar from flowers, and juices from different fruits. This is made easier by the small bumps on the end of its tongue, which help to gather the juices.

Did You Know,That if you visit this bat’s habitat in desert canyons and mountain ranges, take a look around at the flowers, chances are, the Long-nosed Bat may have helped to pollinate them!
