Goldshtein et al. document bats’ navigation ontogeny. Results suggest that mothers facilitate learning of navigation by repeatedly placing their pups on specific trees, which the pups later fly to on their first independent flights. Pups seem to learn navigation routes while being transported upside down by their mothers.
