This short (1:05 min) slow motion video shows a bat using echolocation to capture a moth. This phenomenon could stimulate the following driving questions: How do bats locate their prey in the dark? How can bats tell the difference between prey and other objects? How do the behaviors of bats change in relation to the feedback they receive? How can the bats process this information so quickly? Do bats use other senses to locate and acquire prey? Why do bats “curl up” when they capture their prey? This resource could be coupled with (https://youtu.be/gZxLUNHEmPw) which shows bats locating water.
