Below, listen to the calls of a Seminole bat (Lasiurus seminolus) recorded at Pa-hay-okee. Afterwards, try a round of Name That Tune: Everglades Edition to see if you can identify the Seminole bat among various other natural sounds that are commonly heard in the park, or visit the main bat webpage to learn about how bats use echolocation to navigate and forage for food in the dark.
