Why do bats hang upside down?

What do they do When do they sleep?

Why do nocturnal animals come out at night?

Where do they go in the day?

Can we help them in any way?  

What do bats eat and where do they sleep.

Do bats really sleep upside down?

Do bats have feet?

What colour eyes do owls have?

What do nocturnal animals eat? 

Do all nocturnal animals hibernate?

Why are these animals nocturnal? 

Are animals becoming less nocturnal?

How do bats communicate?

Is a slug a nocturnal animal – because they come out at night?

Some amazing questions - thank you - so much to think about!

Maybe some of them get answered out and about at home, and you could share your findings with us in school.
