Top Ten Coolest Nocturnal Animals

This list is about cool night time animals that have abilities that not all animals have.

The Top Ten

1 Bat Bat Bats are mammals of the order Chiroptera whose forelimbs form webbed wings, making them the only mammals naturally capable of true and sustained flight.

Bats are like the coolest! They use echolocation which I'll explain now. Echolocation is when a bat makes a sound wave in their direction and if it bounces back, the bat will know there's something there. Then the bat will follow the sound wave and it could either be a bug or another object. They are also the only mammal that can fly! Other animals like flying squirrels can't really fly. They just glide. Bats also have big families called a roost. They all live together in a cave and take care of each other. And the babies are adorable. And they also have their own bed covers. Their wings! When they hang upside down on something the cover themselves in their wings like we have our bed covers. Vampire bats are REALLY cool because they kinda make vampires come to life. I mean, that is so cool! They actually suck blood! Bats aren't scary, They are amazing.

I've always liked bats. They're really cute, and they know how to use echolocation! Very impressive. - Rocko

2 Owl Owl Owls are birds from the order Strigiformes, which includes about two hundred species of mostly solitary and nocturnal birds of prey typified by an upright stance, a large, broad head, binocular vision, binaural hearing, sharp talons, and feathers adapted for silent flight.

They are a bird of prey and one of the most feared animals in the ecosystem. They are vicious and can take out anything. They're simply the best! - ohchizzitskriv

Snow owls are beautiful! They make good homes and are good are good at hunting at night. Perfect eye sight.

4 Raccoon Raccoon The raccoon, sometimes spelled racoon, also known as the common raccoon, North American raccoon, northern raccoon and colloquially as coon, is a medium-sized mammal native to North America.

They are intelligent, adorable, clever, and dextrous little tricksters. People hate them for digging into their garbage and carrying rabies but most raccoons do not have rabies, and remember dogs can carry rabies as well. Also, raccoons dig through garbage because they look for food anywhere they can and will eat almost anything. Remember, they were here first, before their home (the forest) was cleared and houses were built. That's why you often see them in urban/suburban places. They adapted to living amongst people despite their home being taken away of them. They are magnificent animals! - evoxpisces

Racoons are the best.
