How Do Bats Communicate?

Ask Us Questions

Bats use the characteristics of other bats' voices to recognise each other, according to a study by researchers from the University of Tuebingen, Germany and the University of Applied Sciences in Konstanz, Germany. The bats use echolocation, which is the ability to sense objects in the environment by hearing echoes from those objects. Animals must recognise each other in order to engage in social behaviour. Vocal communication signals help bats perform strenuous social tasks, such as remaining in a group when flying at high speeds in darkness or avoiding interference between echolocation calls.
