Bats of Oklahoma
The only true flying mammals, our bats feed heavily on nigh-flying insects, including some that cause extensive agricultural and forest damage. They also play a vital role in cave ecosystems, providing nutrients for other cave life through their droppings, and serve as prey for other animals such as snakes and owls.
More than 20 species of bats have been documented in our state. Learn more about our state’s bats in the Bats of Oklahoma Field Guide.
