They are mammals, and therefore have many common mammalian features: such as being warm-blooded and having fur the main adaptation that separates bats from other mammals, however, is their ability to fly some other mammals like so-called flying squirrels and flying lemurs cannot actually fly: in.
The bat monophyly hypothesis states the megachiroptera and microchiroptera are each others closest relatives in an evolutionary sense (ie, they form a clade) if this is true, then their shared characteristics, including the ability to fly, would have been present in their most recent common ancestor (simmons, 1994 1995). Among mammals, bats are unique in that they have true powers of flight other mammals, such as flying squirrels, volplane or glide, always from a higher to a lower no notable grooves or flaps on chin lumps above nose or wrinkled lips possible, most faces lacking even these characteristics tail extending to or beyond the.
