Worldwide, there are nearly 1,000 distinct species of bats. Except for Antarctica, these tiny flying mammals can be found on all continents. Most of them live at night and sleep during the day. Bats spend the day upside-down in caves and trees, where they eat insects and some smaller animals at night. For orientation, bats use echo waves from their own ultrasonic squeals.
Dolphins can be found in every ocean region on the planet, and there are more than 40 different species of dolphin. However, the majority of dolphins inhabit warm water. Pods of up to 100 marine mammals accompany the animals on their journeys. To keep an eye on potential predators, dolphins sleep with one eye open. It is known that the intelligent animals use a variety of sounds to communicate with one another.
These mammals are native to 35 African countries and are the “big cat” species with the most widespread distribution. The snow leopard, tigers, lions, and other big cat species include other animals.
Numerous regions of Africa and the Asian continent are home to leopards. The spotted patterns on the coats of these large carnivores vary greatly. While Southern African leopards have square spots, East African leopards have circular spots! After giving birth to two or three cubs, a female leopard hides them until they are about two months old and begin to roam freely.
