One third of the world's food supply requires insect pollination, and 80% of those crops are pollinated by bees. Pollination occurs as bees visit flowers for nourishment, eating nectar for energy and pollen for protein. Pollen sticks to the bees' leg hairs and is brushed off as the bees move from flower to flower, fertilizing the plants.
 
Bats eat nectar, pollen, fruit, and insects while pollinating fragrant night-opening flowers. They are especially drawn to white, cream, and green flowers. Over 300 types of fruit, including mangoes, bananas, and guavas depend on bats for pollination. Some tropical plants are entirely dependent on bats to spread their seeds or pollinate.
