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:

Myth, if we exclude hunting. Lions are the most likely predator.

Ahh you guys are to clever :clap: :clap:

As Rooies said yes indeed Lions are the biggest predator of sable but Humans hunt more Sable that what is killed by predators. Sad but true

As true as the sky being green as cheetah's face. The croc was eating a python in the waters.
