Sujata says Bat is not a bird but a mammal. How can you support Sujata’s statement?
Yes. Bats are not birds but mammals. Bats are commonly called flying mammals that belong to the taxonomic order Chiroptera. There are over 1200 species of bats that are known to scientists. They are present on every continent except for Antarctica.
Bats are mammals because they give birth to young ones and nurse them and have hair. This is why bats are classified into the taxonomic order Mammalia. While it is true that bats can fly, they are not closely related to birds, at all. In fact, a bat is more closely related to a mammal than it is to a bird.
