These Endangered Bats Are Beautiful

" Bats are one of the most endangered land mammals in the United States. The lesser long-nosed bat has been endangered since 1988, largely due to habitat loss and disrupted roosts. Despite the disturbances in their environment, they remain dedicated to their food source. Residing in the Sky Islands in Arizona as well as parts of New Mexico, Mexico, and Central America, the lesser long-nosed bats embark on a long distance migration in order to follow the flowering cycle of night-blooming cacti. They are one in only a handful of species that migrate such long distances. They also serve as pollinators for the cacti, creating a mutually beneficial relationship.

The following slow-motion video clip shows different bats feeding on the nectar of flowering cacti. Take a look. "
