Top Animals Humans Need to Survive - Bats

Bats, despite being considered scary creatures, are animals that are very important for the maintenance of the ecosystem. They are the second largest order of mammals and are also the only ones with the ability to fly. Around 70% of bats are insectivores, feeding on insects, with virtually all the rest feeding on fruit. Bats contribute substantially to the structure and dynamics of ecosystems because they act as pollinators, seed dispersers, insect predators (including agricultural pests) and suppliers of nutrients in caves.
