Bats have been the basis of many horror stories and movies for the longest time, and that is because there are a lot of misconceptions about the species, such as how they are all blind or that they suck blood. While that is true in some cases, it is not true of all species of bats. There are thousands of different bats in the world, and only some of them you need to be terrified of, but those are rare, extreme cases. Here are ten truly bizarre bats in the night.

Banana Bat

The Banana Bat is a species of bat exclusive to Mexico. They are notable for their long snout, which is the biggest of any bat in the world. They mostly feed on nectar, and have become an important pollinator in the tropical regions of the country.

Ghost Bat

The Ghost Bat has a terrifying appearance, as they are covered in white fur and live in the tropical rainforests in Central and South America. They are a solitary animal that hide in the daylight, but hunt for insects and moths at night.
