"Bat is the common name of all animals of the class mammalia which are furnished with true wings, and so are capable of really flying or propelling themselves in the air. Bats are now generally placed by naturalists in the order cheiroptera, although, like many other animals of that great order, most of them are by no means exclusively carnivorous. Upward of 130 species have been described, and there is great probability that the actual number existing is very much greater."—(Charles Leonard-Stuart, 1911)
