In a Time For Kids article called Bats Beware we’ve learned that bats carry a disease called white nose syndrome (WNS). In the article we learned the disease spreads from the nose to the ears to the wing’s also it makes the bat’s dehydrated which means they can’t fly and if they can’t fly they can’t get water or fly so they will die. If this continues the bat’s might go extinct that will not be good. The bat’s have some very good qualities like they eat rodents that eat farm crops which saves farmers money than having to buy more. The disease is only in like half of the united states and a little bit in canada.


This is a bat that does not have WNS  (white nose syndrome) as you can see the bat’s nose wing’s or ears are not white so you can see they do not have white nose syndrome also it is flying with WNS they can’t fly.
