Vampire Bats! Learn About Vampire Bats and Enjoy Colorful Pictures - Look and Learn!

4 Stars, Buy it

 

And today’s Look and Learn (I actually hope to do more than 1 today) is on Vampire Bats. It’s honestly hard to pick them when you have so many of them.

 

Vampire Bats are so ugly that they are cute. And I have always thought Bats were pretty cute.

 

This is one of the better ones in the series, very limited pixelated photos and the book was strong on fact. There was also nothing offensive in it (some other editions have some offensive content).

Vampire Bats are able to run (COOL!)

Vampire bats tend to live in colonies
