There are more than 2,000 kinds of bats, and so naturally there are many differences among them. Most bats eat insects, but there are bats in the warm tropics that eat fruit or the pollen of flowers. And there are still other bats that eat fish or Smaller bats' or blood.
Britain's biggest bat is the noctule, or great bat, but its extended wing span is only 33 to 36 centimeters and its length 13 centimeters. This bat lives in wooded districts and feeds on large insects.

The fruit-eating bats of the tropics alight on branches bearing fruit. They have broad, flat grinding teeth to crush the juices from the fruit. Pollen-eating bats have long tongues which enable them to reach into the flowers.

The vampire bat feeds only on blood. It gets the blood from horses, cattle, dogs, chickens, and people. With its two sharp upper incisors (the front teeth) it makes a shallow hole in the skin of its victim. It then laps the blood that comes from the wound.
Bats may have from 20 to 38 teeth. A curious thing is that there is no bat known to have 22 teeth. Some of the insect-eating bats have as many as 38 teeth! So you see that teeth are quite important to a bat.

Did you know that bats have been on earth for so long that they are one of the oldest established orders of animals? Fossil remains of bats have been found that are about 60,000,000 years old! The earliest known picture of a bat is in a tomb in Egypt. It was made about 4,000 years ago.

Very,very sharp teeth. Thats why if you ever see one on the ground, do not pick it up. If they bite you, which they will as a defense, they will surely penetrate the skin. Then it's off to the hospital to begin a painful series of rabies shots. Trust me, the teeth are in there.

Yes, they have teeth. Their teeth are very fine at the tip, so usually if it bites you at night you won't even feel it. I had one in my house last night, the scariest thing. They come under your doors. They can flatten themselves, or make themselves very tiny to fit through things. But it could have bitten me at night and I might not have felt it. There is also a type of bat called the Vampire Bat who drinks blood.
