Many bats use echolocation. Microbats use echolocation to find their prey. When bats fly, they are constantly sending sounds. When the sound hits an object, it bounces back to the bat so the bat knows what is ahead. Next, they stick out their tongue and capture the insect. With echolocation, bats can find their prey in the dark. Microbats rely on sound to find their food.
