What is it like to be a bat?

Participant: Marco De Anda Urquieta


Q: When you think of bats, what first comes to your mind?

When I tried to imagine being a bat, the first thing I imagined was me hanging upside down in a cave. I am curious of how bats' echo location works.

Q: You just spent a period of time imagining what it is like to be a bat. What did you imagine?

I imagined myself hanging upside down in a cave. Then I flew outside of the cave to find food. Once I found food I imagined myself sucking the nectar our of a plant. I also imagined being chased by a predator then flying back to the cave.

Q: During the time you were imagining, were you somewhere?

Yes, I imagined myself in a tropical rainforest, with a giant cave next to it.
