Bats are known for many remarkable qualities including mammalian powered flight and echolocation. Using CT-scanning technology, Museum scientists are taking a new look at bat skeletons to learn more about how they've evolved such interesting features. In this SciCafe, curator Nancy Simmons and postdoctoral fellow Abigail Curtis, from the Museum's Department of Mammalogy, take an exciting journey inside the world (and bodies!) of bats.

This SciCafe took place at the Museum on October 7, 2015.
