Think bats are dirty? Think again!

Bat going to the toilet upside down

Despite what some people think, bats are very clean animals and they invert to toilet. They accomplish this by swinging their bodies upside down (or right way up if you are human!) and hanging by their thumbs. After doing their business, they have a quick shake before righting themselves.

Harry the netting bat shows us how it is done!
