In this diff, User:Shadowkittie5460 added a paragraph of extra information about recent research into White Nose Syndrome. While this looks good, and is cited, I wonder whether this much information belongs in a section in the general Bat article, when we have a separate article on White Nose Syndrome linked at the top of the section.
The existing information seems to suggest that microbats don't use vision, but this isn't true. Microbats probably use vision for navigation and some species of microbats have been reported to not use echolocation even during foraging on bright nights. Here are two sources of info:
"A gigantic, life-size, ceramic bat-man was dug up..." What does "gigantic, life-size" mean? Also no citation is given.18.104.22.168 (talk) 15:22, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
I have added a citation and removed the word gigantic. Sarahj2107 (talk) 15:30, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

The anatomy section of the page needs some expansion. There are many bat adaptations and anatomical features, such as the lung adaptations necessary for flight and changes to the vestibular system for balance, that are unique among mammals and should be on the page. Can we open up the page briefly to help expand this section?
