Hey pals! Hope you are doing great. Because in this article we are going to dive into the life of one of the smallest but no less dangerous a creature and to top it all, it can fly. We are talking about Bats! The only mammals capable of a non-stop flight, these creatures have over a thousand species. Remember the Dracula? He never came out in the sun. Well, bats are nocturnal creatures. They sleep literally hanging upside down from cave ceilings, or trees, or anywhere dark, damp, and moist. And they don’t have a short lifespan either! The average lifespan of this blood-sucking demon (although only three species are called ‘Vampire Species’) is forty years. That’s more than your dog! Have fun filling these free printable bat coloring pages. Oh, and keep plenty of black shades with you because you’ll definitely need them for these Halloween bat coloring sheets to print.

Resting Bats Coloring Page:
That bat is going to crash into the other one, the one that is sleeping. Oh no, he won’t! That is because bats use echolocation to navigate in the dark (they don’t see very well at night).

Still, want them to crash? Well, you have the colors to crash them anyway.
