My most exciting science experience was discovering that even very small bats that weigh only 10 grams (about one third of an ounce) travel long distances every night. We found some species will travel 30 or more miles, one way, in their quest for food. This includes mother bats that have to feed themselves and return to their roost to feed their young periodically through the night.
