Moth Jams Bat Sonar

Moth Jams Bat Sonar

A species of tiger moth can evade hungry bats by making extra-loud clicks that jam the bats' ability to echolocate. In a study published in Science, researchers found that as long as moths could emit clicks, the bats could not catch them. However, when the scientists pierced a small hole in the moths' vibrating tymbals, the muffled moths were promptly eaten. More info and video at Wired.com.
