a presentation on bats to children from the infant school of Gamboa.
My presentation - "The Secret Life of Bats" - was composed of three parts:
- Where do bats live?
- What do bats eat?
- Why bats are our friends?
Before presenting some slides for each part,
I asked the children to test their knowledge.
A child answered "Frog!" to the question about the diet.
He had probably heard of the work realised in the laboratory of Rachel Page
- my host laboratory in Gamboa - which studies the only species
known around the world to eat frogs: Trachops cirrhosus.
I ended my presentation by talking about the flight and echolocation in bats
with a plush as support. A first time for me with such a young,
to repeat undoubtedly!
