A  Batty  Poem


A little black bat flew into the room,
I heard a loud sound,  and it was a  ZOOM!

Her mother was a mammal who nursed her young,
They hang upside down by their feet not their tongue.

Nocturnal time they sleep all day,
Because they are sleeping with no time for play,

Eating bugs in flight all through the night,
Their echolocation shining bright.

Some bats are huge and some are small,
Some have ugly noses, and some have none at all.

Big ears and small eyes, and they're little sized,
They follow the insects with ears not their eyes.

Huge eyes and big sized to juicy  fruit they eat,
They  eat till they're full, then hang by their feet.

In the winter they hibernate just like a bear,
So if you should see one, let him sleep,
Leave him there!
