False. I think bats fly straight out and turn to where they know there is food - left or right.

Why would they want to turn left all the time when exiting a cave? :hmz: If this is true I will like to know the answer. :thumbs_up:

Because bats returning to the cave approach from the opposite direction to avoid air traffic congestion.

Ndloti. :lol: :lol:
Do you know how small a bat's brain is. Avoid traffic congestion!! I will wait for the answer - if this is true I will be most surprised. I really think you are having me on. D.

There have been assertions that bats always bear left when exiting a cave, and some sources even suggest that this true. It has been suggested that the orientation of the moon, as well as the need to avoid collisions with other bats (a sort of "keep-left, pass-right" policy) is the reason for this.

However, there is no proof that any of these things are true, and in fact, if one gives it logical thought, it would make little sense. For one, bats don't always face the same direction, so the setting sun or moon would have little, if any, effect. Secondly, if one observes bats leaving a cave at twilight, one will notice that they pour out in all directions.

The conclusion, therefore, is that this is FALSE.

Well done, Radman, and other mites ... :clap: :clap: Radman ... IT! :thumbs_up:
