How much do you know about animals that fly? Take this quiz to find out.
Sure, you know that birds fly, but did you know that there is also one mammal that can truly fly? Although most animals (other than birds) don't actually fly, they glide, we think of many creatures as being able to fly. Flying foxes are actually fruit bats, and yes, they can fly. Bats are the only mammal that can do so. Flying squirrels, flying lizards and flying fish can't fly, but they sure look like they do.
And, although many insects can actually fly, others are said to fly, when, like many other creatures, they actually glide. Still, some insects, whether they can actually fly or glide, are completely terrifying, and we don't want to be anywhere near them.
Even humans can fly. Sure, we need help, but who's to say that's not ok? Since the beginning of time, humans have sought flight. Even as far back as ancient Greece and Rome, humans have dreamed of flight. We don't have feathers or wings, but we certainly have managed to get ourselves into the air.
