Bat Skeleton in Resin

The Science

This is a lovely, delicate bat skeleton embedded in a clear block of sturdy lucite, making it ideal for study, and perfect as an unusual piece of biology decor. 

The over 1,100 species of bat are incredibly diverse, from the tiny bumblebee bat to giant flying foxes with 6 foot wingspans. The forelimbs of a bat are webbed and developed as wings, making them the only mammals capable of sustained flight.

The Story

This skeleton is a Japanese House Bat, or Japanese Pipistrelle, which is a kind of vesper bat native to Japan, Taiwan and Korea. It gets its name from its tendency to roost in the roofs of buildings. Like most vesper bats, the Japanese House Bat eats mainly insects and hunts at night, relying on echolocation to find its way around.

    unfortunately, the jaw had broken off by the time we unwrapped the rat skeleton. But, other than that it was good.
