The world's largest natural bat colony is the Bracken Bat Cave in Texas, which houses 20 million bats. Over the course of one night, the entire colony can consume a whopping 200 tons of bugs. There's so many bats that when they collectively depart their cave to go foraging, a dense cloud composed of their bodies is visible on weather radar.
