Learn about some of nature's most misunderstood creatures at The Bat Jungle. The animal research and observation facility seeks to dispel some of the common misconceptions regarding the winged beasts by teaching about the diversity of bat species, their habitats, their behavior, and the importance they have in many cultures. From behind a glass screen, watch 40 live bats of seven different species flying around a large enclosure, designed to look just like a cloud forest at nighttime. Listen to the ultrasonic echolocation calls and social calls of the bats as they fly around, with the usually undetectable sounds translated through a special receiver.

The Bat Jungle reviews
We were on the fence about this place but the reviews were so good we went for it. It is so worth the price and doesn't take long to enjoy. Great fun for my toddler and my biology teacher husband... more »

The Bat Jungle was a particularly great experience. Our guides enthusiasm for bats helped make this one of the most fun stops on my trip. The actual bat area is the same as you you would find in your average zoo, but the guide was so good I didn't care. Highly recommend for anyone remotely interested in bats.
Great bat centre with the opportunity to see captive bats close up. A very good introductory talk and lively staff.
