Bat Study Resources
Bats always garner student interest and Acorn Naturalists offers many resources to enhance bat explorations. This section includes bat skull replicas, bat scat replicas, bat fur replicas, bat houses, bat puppets and bat study kits. Also included in this section are sophisticated ultrasonic bat detectors for identifying bats as they fly past at night. These Echo Meter bat detectors we offer plug into hand held devices (iphones, Androids, ipads) and record bat ecolocation sounds and identify individual species based on those recordings. These recordings can be downloaded to computers and/or shared with others. Bat detectors add interest to night hikes, camp programs, or citizen scientists monitoring bat populations. The data collected provides valuable information on which species of bats are present, as well as when they appear and in what numbers they are found.
