You may follow your nose to the nearest pizza place, but vampire bats use their ears to figure out where the next meal is. Like many species of bats, these Central and South American mammals use "echolocation" to find food--and find their way--in total darkness.

One other cool thing about vampire bats is that their knees face backwards.
