bats are mammals of the order Chiroptera; with their forelimbs adapted as wings, they are the only mammals capable of true and sustained flight. Bats are more manoeuvrable than birds, flying with their very long spread-out digits covered with a thin membrane or patagium. It may surprise you but some parts in Nigeria are eating bats. Even where I came from in delta eku, we do eat bats.

The oldest fossil "proto-frog" appeared in the early Triassic of Madagascar, but molecular clock dating suggests their origins may extend further back to the Permian, 265 million years ago. Just like fish, many people eats frogs as they see it as meat. Most especially in the riverine part of Nigeria.
