The bat

Bats

The pregnancy of the bat is fairly long: Whilst mating occurs in late summer, fertilisation takes place only in the spring, following hibernation.

The female gives birth to one or two pups in July in a special breeding colony which can incorporate up to 100 animals and may be found in hollowed trees along Fodsporet.
