Sleeping Flying Fox bats in Thailand

Sleeping Flying Fox bats in Thailand

So since we’re talking about bats, I thought I would do another puzzler about them. Maybe you’ve seen pictures of thousands of bats hanging from the ceiling of a cave. Ever wondered why they don’t fall when they’re sleeping? That is this week’s puzzler: Why don’t sleeping bats fall down? Check back next weekend to watch a video explaining this.

    By turning upside down, their lungs are actually higher up in their bodies so the air helps them float up so they won’t fall even when they are asleep!

      You always score points for creativity! I appreciate your comments, even when the guesses are a bit off.
