Observation In Moth Tail Divert Bat Attack

Satisfactory Essays
1. The primary objective in “Moth tail divert bat attack: Evolution of acoustic deflection” is to test whether the spinning hindwing tails changes the target of the echolocation on a bat’s attack. This paper aims to observe the bat attacks on the moth tail, instead of attacking the moth’s wing or other body parts. 2. Primary findings: • Bats captured less moths with the tails than ones with without the tails. • A moth without a tail is more likely to be captured by the bat. • The predator evasion did not change during flight performance. • Moth tails delocalizes the bat attacks to expendable wing parts. 3. If this research continued on, this study can test various lengths of hindwing tails in separate evolutionary counter events in
