  • Bats Use Polarized Light to Navigate; Creatures Not So Blind After All
    Bats use polarized light to navigate the sky, scientists have found.In addition to echolocation — which only works for distances between 16 and 160 feet away — and an internal magnetic compass, researchers say that being able to follow the patterns of polarized light dispersed across the lower atmosphere help give bats a sense of directional orientation.
