Prof. Kate Jones (Part Two): Bats - mixing your margaritas since 55,000,000 BC

“Bats are awesome and endlessly fascinating” - and it’s a good job too, because this is the second part of a two-part conversation all about the flying mammals! After rain stopped play last week, this in-depth conversation with Prof. Kate Jones (UCL’s resident bat expert and Harrison Ford worrier) picks back up by pitting megabats against microbats. From there we discuss how the US army attempted to militarise bats, how bats are helping to save humans billions of pounds, how to make your garden more bat friendly, and we dig deep into the sonic war that has been taking place for millions of years, pitting bat-kind against their age-old nemeses, the moths!
