Insectivorous bats have some of the smallest olfactory organs in mammals and invest significantly less in.A. Lollar, B. Schmidt-French, Captive Care and Medical Reference for the Rehabilitation of Insectivorous Bats (Bat World Sanctuary, ed. 2, 2002)

Insectivorous bats have some of the smallest olfactory organs in mammals and invest significantly less in olfactory tissues than bats with frugivorous or mixed (frugivorous and insectivorous) diets (29). Understanding the role of olfaction in bat-insect interactions is an important frontier. Alternatively, bats may have learned to avoid darkened fireflies by extracting acoustic information. 2, 2002).

A comprehensive book for rehabilitators, veterinarians and researchers that care for captive insect-eating bats. Contains instructions for feeding, caging, treatments for injuries and other medical conditions, diagnostic charts, pharmaceutical recommendations, surgical techniques and human health precautions. Updated 2002. Proceeds benefit the rescue efforts of Bat World Sanctuary.

It is a shame when someone takes a magnificent work like Ms Lollar's, that veterinarians, zoologists, biologists and other true animal care professionals, use as their 'go to book' in order to save lives, and try to degrade it for personal reasons. Amanda Lollar is world renowned in the bat community. She has spent 20 years of her life, 365 days a year, caring and perfecting the treatment of bats both in captivity and in the wild. In my opinion, readers should beware of negative reviews when there might be someone out there who may be in the court system because of their lies about Ms. Lollar and they are lashing out. Amanda Lollar has trained bat care professionals from every bat inhabited continent in the world. I believe that speaks for itself. I highly recommend Ms. Lollar's book for anyone truly concerned about the care, medical treatment, husbandry, housing, enrichment and so much more of bats. This work is spot-on.

This book is an invaluable asset to anyone working with bats. The information included is meticulously collected, proven and thorough. It covers everything from the rescue of newborn pups to treating bats with burns, pneumonia, broken bones, etc... The book covers which medications are best to use in which conditions. Even things as simple as feeding and wrist sprains, which in bats are not simple, are covered. I have found several Veterinarians who have found the book to be helpful in the treatment of these animals. If you are working with bats or even interested in their biology and physiology this is a great book written by people who know.

Most of this book is copy/paste from older free online bat rehabilitation manuals. Some passages are plagiarized directly from other manuals without quotation marks or citations. A lot of the information is inaccurate. For instance Amanda Lollar states that people should talk baby talk to the bats to "comfort" them. Talking to bats actually stresses them. It's also against national rehabilitation guidelines because it can cause imprinting.

I think some of the people writing these reviews have not read the book. I read five chapters of the current third edition. It's riddled with typos, spelling errors and grammatical errors. There are two to three mistakes per page! Even the photo captions have mistakes. How do that many mistakes make it into a third edition? It reads as if the writer did not even graduate from high school. I realize she never went to college but she could still do a better job or have someone proof it for her.

The book is also redundant. It's a big book because she writes the same thing over and over for each species of bat. She should just note the differences and save some trees. The book would be 1/4 the size if she didn't repeat herself. Again, most of her descriptions are copy/paste from other books. I know because I read the source books.

Some of the descriptions of different species are also inaccurate. It's obvious she has not cared for most of these species of bats based her inaccurate descriptions.

The author shows herself using controlled substances and performing surgery. She is not a veterinarian and has no DEA license. That is illegal. She should not be encouraging illegal activity.

The author posts a few chapters of this book on her website for free. You should read that before considering purchasing this book. The current third edition is also 1/3 the price of the first edition. It's even a larger book.

Scientists sit in their ivory towers and theorize about bat care. Lollar and French share their work and findings from the trenches, where real bat care takes place. The information contained in this book gives a factual, unique, easy-to-understand, and compassionate look into the complicated world of bat rehabilitation. While keeping public safety at the forefront, the book outlines specific details on the proper care of captive bats, including recommended supplies, life-insuring measurements, and diagrams. This book is an absolute must for bat rehabbers!

This book is the BEST information out there for Bat Rehabbers, Veterinarians and scientists. As a bat rehabber i know what works for me and this book has helped me So much to be a HUMANE caregiver. Most other bat rehabbing books are very insensitive to the bat, this book is wonderful. i can't say enough about it.

Not only an outstanding piece of reference material but an absolute must for any individual responsible for the rehab of bats. I have had 2 veterinarians as well as my orthopedic surgeon (a bat enthusiast) review the book and all have given it raves. As another book reviewer has mentioned, it is unofficially called the 'bat bible' within the bat community. Congratulations to Lollar and French for their original work as well as this new, updated version of the bat bible.

This book is well organized, and gives current information on the care of insectivorous bats. It is easy to understand for all educational backgrounds. Not until this book, was there a well written, carefully researched book on bat rehabilitation. Every facility that houses insectivorous bats should be required to own one. All the proceeds from this book goes directly to bat rescue.
I am a Physical therapist turned bat rehabber and the information in this book is everything you need to approprately treat and release bats. The price is perfect compared to other rehab books I have had to purchase. The Chapters get you quickly and easliy to the right page when needed and the charts contained in the back I frequently refer to. There is even a section to help find equipment. They really thought of everything!!!
