Vampire Bat Knows Social Distancing
Researchers found an interesting fact about vampire bats. As we all know the trending buzz word of social distancing, these bats have known it since longer than us. These bats spend very less time with other species of their kind when they feel sick. Which creates a healthy environment for the others to survive. This sickness induced social distancing does not require cooperation from others & is very common across these species. Researchers did this experiment on approx 31 vampire bats & could draw out this outcome when a small set of bats were sick. This study was published in the reputed journal Behavioral Ecology.
