Creature Comforts | Mississippi's Bats

The bat might not be one of the featured animals when we think about Mississippi wildlife, such as deer or catfish, but the state is home to fifteen types of bats that play a significant role in Mississippi's ecosystem. So today we welcome Katelin Cross from the Museum of Natural Science to talk about the role of the bat, and answer any questions you might have about these winged mammals.

As always, Dr. Troy Majure, DVM, with the Animal Medical Center and Libby Hartfield, Retired Director of the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science, is here if you have any concerns about your furry friends or general wildlife experiences. Email the show:
