The NHM's Curiosity Show visits mammalogy to talk with Citizen Science coordinator Miguel Ordenana and learn all about LA's urban bats. You might have missed bats in the city, but they're here, and at NHM we're seeing new species visit us ever since we planted our Nature Gardens. Or actually, hearing them - Miguel detects bats at night using bat detectors that record and identify their calls. We also visit the bats stored in our mammal collection and learn how they fly and catch insects.
Discover hidden treasures behind the scenes at NHM with The Curiosity Show’s host, Dr. Chris Thacker, NHM Curator of Fishes. Meet our scientists and see how our research is making an impact on the world around us.
