Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What kind of bat was Stellaluna?

    • A.

      Flying bat

    • B.

      Blind bat

    • C.

      Fruit bat

    • D.

      Vampire bat

    Correct Answer
    C. Fruit bat
    Explanation
    Stellaluna was a fruit bat because fruit bats primarily eat fruits and nectar. They have a long snout and sharp teeth, which are adapted for eating fruits. Unlike vampire bats that feed on blood or blind bats that rely on echolocation, fruit bats have good eyesight and use their sense of smell to locate ripe fruits. Stellaluna's diet and physical characteristics align with those of a fruit bat, making it the correct answer.
