Absurd Creatures: Bats Are Totally Legit. Trust Me, I'm a Vampire.
Geege Schuman stashed this in Bats
Just how they can bank and accelerate and brake so deftly was largely a mystery until recently. It was only in April that scientists announced the answer: A bat’s wings are covered in tiny sensory hairs. These detect air currents, sending signals to the brain so a bat can juke with uncommon skill. In a way, it’s feeling its way through the air.
What a cool analogy. I want to feel my way through the air!
