    @party gremlin Well now, aren't you the old misery, perhaps you could lighten up just a tad eh! I personally quite enjoyed the cinema filler, I didn't come here for a stern lecture. The information was still there in as much as you would expect from a short YT video, in fact more than most. If this video has inspired you to know more about this subject, why not go on Google and find more detailed explanations of creatures with sonar. The sum of mankinds knowledge is at your fingertips... well not quite but you can find out quite a lot with very little work nowadays.

    I realize the problem with Animalogic, they keep showing irrelevant footage from old tv shows or movies which gets annoying. Time to block their channel.

    I would like to request a video on Tree Shrews- totally underrated animals. Not Shrews but distant relatives of primates and they also live in my garden in Thailand so I’m biased- Their hands are almost like primate hands and they are probably similar to the first primates that evolved. Not related to anything else so they are super unique! Oh and they poop in carnivorous plants... I mean... what else could you want from an animal?

    I didn't know there were bats that didn't echo locate. That bird's beak reminds me of something - I wonder if they (and flying foxes) evolved as carnivores, since their teeth (and beak) look like those of predators.

I was so pissed off, I fed the little shit to my snake. (I did feel bad for making it get crushed alive by my boa)
