This realistically detailed Brown Bat puppet features a workable mouth, complete with fangs, and leather-like fabric wings, which spread into an infamous silhouette, then flap silently into the darkness. Befriend this creature of the night and he just might rid you of the scourge of stinging insects. Movable mouth and wings. Measures 12" long x 24" wide x 3" tall. (Folkmanis 2391)

FACTS OF INTEREST: There are at least 1,000 species of bat that live all over the world except in the Arctic and Antarctica. Most are tropical. Bats are the only mammals that can really fly. There are two families: the insect-eaters and the larger fruit-eating bats. Bats find their way and their prey by listening to echoes of their own squeaks that are too high-pitched for people to hear. Bats are some of our best animal friends since they eat large numbers of insect pests. One bat can eat thousands of mosquitoes in a night.
