    How to use "Chiropteran" in context?

    Chiropterans are a group of animals that include bats, sloths, and spiders. They are the only group of animals in the world that can voluntarily maintain upside-down positions for extended periods of time.

    Chiropterans are unique animals because of their ability to fly. Some bats can fly up to speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. Sloths can move very slowly, but their long hairs and soft skin allow them to conserve energy. Spiders can move quickly and cling to almost any surface.
