In this exciting research, they show us the ability of bats to use echolocation as a tool to locate water. We know that the echolocation help bats to capture prey and small insects, but this has really surprised scientists, the capability of these flying mammals to find ponds or any other body of water. The precision of echolocation is such that when bats are approaching water, they are able to keep the right distance from the surface, avoiding getting wet and drinking only the amount of water they need. Despite its appearance, bats are very interesting and important species in the animal kingdom.
