Many of Arizona's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Arizona's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Maricopa county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Gilbert animal control for wildlife issues.

Gilbert Wildlife Removal Tip: Can Bats Walk on the Ground?

Often, when bats are portrayed, either through media and cartoons, or even in the wild, they are taking one of two distinct poses: hanging off a branch, or flying around. Sometimes, such as on wild nature programs, you will also observe them being held. However, one pose that you never see is bats walking along the ground; while this might seem odd, it happens for one simple reason: most bats cannot walk.

Bats are one of the most specialized animals in the world: they are the only mammal that can fly, plus, because of this, they are tremendously dedicated in this skill. The bat's body is aero-dynamic, with glow bones plus thin wings that are also particularly flexible as well as hypersensitive. In fact, the wings of a bat possess approximately 2 dozen joints, and are enclosed in the touch-sensitive cells that are present on human's fingertips.

Since they are so specialized, or maybe despite this fact, bats are unable to walk around. Their rear legs are frequently mostly of no use, added than for hanging off a tree branch, often thin plus weak, with delicate bones along with knees that face backwards. If a bat does end up on the ground for some cause, it will often end up clumsily using its front legs to drag its body around, keeping any pressure off its thin back legs. This can mean an awkward movement for the bat, though, especially since the front legs are mostly designed for flying, not walking along the ground or crawling.

Out of the above twelve thousand species of bats present all over the world, there are only two that can walk: the vampire bat, and the short-tailed bat- also known as the tunnel bat. In a laboratory study, in fact, the vampire bat, when put on a treadmill, could sprint on all 4's, reaching speeds of almost three miles per-hour. While this number may not seem like much, it is incredibly for an animal that is not a land-dwelling animal, at all.

While bats are not made to walk, and are therefore at a disadvantage in comparison to other mammals, they are great at other things, such as flying. Bats also sometimes have adaptions that make it easier to move around on their legs, such as the burrowing bat- equipped with 'claws' at the bottom of their toes, grooves on top of their feet, plus an elbow joints that bend side-ways, allowing them to utilize their wrists to drive off objects and gain traction. Burrowing bats, while they are unique in this regard, often are more adapted for finding food, as well, since these advantages mean that they can search for food equally on the ground, and in the air.
