Bats would go trick or treating together...if they did that sort of thing

Scientists are learning more about the complex social life of different species of bats. Bats move around a lot, but they come back to roost with their BFFs - and some are co-ed while some prefer to hang out with bats of the same sex! These long-lasting relationships could have implications for disease-control and habitat needs. Read more about it here, or go to the source article here (thank you open access!).
