Fun Facts about Bats! Bats are the only single mammal that can fly (while other mammals can glide for short periods, bats have the ability for self-powered flight across long distances). There are over one thousand different species of bat. Bats are nocturnal (and to be honest, at Beserk, so are we!). Bats "see" in the dark via accurate echolocation. More fun facts! There are 3 species of vampire bats that feed solely on blood. Bats can live for over 20 years! Okay, enough bat facts now. The silhouette image of a bat (think of the "Batman" symbol) is instantly recognisable. And not just by fans of the DC Comics character Batman, but by alternative gothic folk or people of the goth persuasion. In goth subculture, bats are almost literally everywhere. Why? Because they represent the night! That time of the day when darkness descends, we lose our inhibitions and embrace the moon and the stars. Beserk offer a tidy collection of bat-themed products, from headwear to parasols, handbags to dresses, homewares and kitchenware, footwear, clothing, pins and patches jewellery, things for your bathroom, and more!
